Become a Peer Mentor

Support a peer who is new to grief

Peer mentors are trained volunteers who are matched with newly bereaved peers to help them cope with the early days of grief. Talking one-on-one with a peer mentor who has “been there” can help someone new to loss feel less alone. It can also provide a glimmer of hope.

The Griffin Cares Peer Mentorship program includes training and ongoing support for mentor participants. Applicants must be at least one year post loss and feel ready to discuss topics including baby loss and grief to support a peer.

"Helping others through this life-altering tragedy enables me keep my daughter close to my heart, while paying forward what others did for me in those initial deep, dark days."
Anna F., Charlotte’s Mom

Help others heal by sharing what has worked for you

Peer support is all about families helping other families get through tough times. If there was something you did that helped you cope, we invite you to share it with others in the baby loss community.

Is there a book you read that helped you clarify your feelings? A social account that makes you feel less alone? A meaningful ritual that gives you a sense of peace? Sharing your suggestions can make the path a little easier for someone else.

“Reading about others who had shared experiences made me feel less alone.”
Carolyn S., Eli’s Mom
