GriefShare is for people grieving the death of a family member or friend.

GriefShare is here to help during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Grief support groups are now meeting online, so you can get the support you need from the safety of your own home.  We are launching our new Summer Support series, which will cover topics including COVID-19 & Grief, Anxiety & Grief, Dealing with Loneliness, Establishing a New Life in Your Grief.

GriefShare is a faith-based friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone.

Thousands of GriefShare support groups meet weekly around the world. Visit or join a group at anytime. And attend as many meetings as you like.  GriefShare groups have a 13 week cycle, but you are welcome to begin attending at any session.  You will find encouragement and help whenever you begin. You will be able to continue with GriefShare through the next 13-week cycle and view any videos you have not seen.

Each week your GriefShare group will watch a video seminar featuring top experts on grief and recovery subjects. These videos are produced in an interesting television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies, dramatic reenactments, and on-location video.

Support group discussion with focus
After viewing the video, you and the other group members will spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in your lives.

Personal study and reflection
During the week you will have the opportunity to use your workbook for further personal study of the grieving process and to help sort out your emotions through journaling. Your group will spend time discussing questions and comments from the workbook study.

Jul 3 all-day

Clackamas County has initiated Go Teams to help community members struggling with stress and anxiety during this Coronavirus / COVID-19 pandemic – available by phone 24/7 (24 hours per day, 7 days per week) at: 503-655-8585.

See article on KPTV at: https://www.kptv.com/news/go-teams-clackamas-co-launches-program-to-help-people-struggling-with-stress-anxiety-during-covid/article_d3383498-897f-11ea-9c43-9b4da6c01dc7.html

Weekdays 12pm-7pm PST except holidays

Welcome to Reach Out Oregon!

Parents know how it can be lonely, frightening and isolating to care for a young person experiencing emotional, behavioral and mental health challenges. It can be hard to figure out where and how to reach out for help and information. Most of us feel disoriented when trying to find needed support for what our family is facing.  Shame and stigma surrounding these issues can make it even more challenging.

As caregivers ourselves, we have direct lived experience navigating challenges on behalf of our children and families. And as a community, we have much to offer one another. This is what Reach Out Oregon is all about, a supportive community where you will find:

  • Inspiration
  • Connection
  • Compassion
  • Support

  Family Self-Care during COVID-19

  • Have a special friendly online conversation about Family Self-Care during COVID-19.
  • More events coming, stay tuned.
  • Learn about fun activities to bring back to your family.

See article on KPTV at: https://www.kptv.com/news/go-teams-clackamas-co-launches-program-to-help-people-struggling-with-stress-anxiety-during-covid/article_d3383498-897f-11ea-9c43-9b4da6c01dc7.html

“Go Teams” wear protective gear and can go into the community and meet with the person who is struggling and listen to their story.  They are trained in psychological first aid which is described as “a provider going to connect with an individual by really listening and showing empathy,” but “[it] is not therapy or case management…[or] crisis mental health services.”

Welcome to Reach Out Oregon!

Parents know how it can be lonely, frightening and isolating to care for a young person experiencing emotional, behavioral and mental health challenges. It can be hard to figure out where and how to reach out for help and information. Most of us feel disoriented when trying to find needed support for what our family is facing.  Shame and stigma surrounding these issues can make it even more challenging.

As caregivers ourselves, we have direct lived experience navigating challenges on behalf of our children and families. And as a community, we have much to offer one another. This is what Reach Out Oregon is all about, a supportive community where you will find:

GriefShare is for people grieving the death of a family member or friend.

GriefShare is here to help during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Grief support groups are now meeting online, so you can get the support you need from the safety of your own home.  We are launching our new Summer Support series, which will cover topics including COVID-19 & Grief, Anxiety & Grief, Dealing with Loneliness, Establishing a New Life in Your Grief.

GriefShare is a faith-based friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone.

Thousands of GriefShare support groups meet weekly around the world. Visit or join a group at anytime. And attend as many meetings as you like.  GriefShare groups have a 13 week cycle, but you are welcome to begin attending at any session.  You will find encouragement and help whenever you begin. You will be able to continue with GriefShare through the next 13-week cycle and view any videos you have not seen.

Each week your GriefShare group will watch a video seminar featuring top experts on grief and recovery subjects. These videos are produced in an interesting television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies, dramatic reenactments, and on-location video.

Support group discussion with focus
After viewing the video, you and the other group members will spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in your lives.

Personal study and reflection
During the week you will have the opportunity to use your workbook for further personal study of the grieving process and to help sort out your emotions through journaling. Your group will spend time discussing questions and comments from the workbook study.

SLOP – Suic. Language of Pain – Support Group with Angel Prater at Folktime – Thursdays @ Online via Zoom
Jul 9 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

SUICIDE as a Language Of Pain SUPPORT GROUP

FOR SURVIVORS BY SURVIVORS!!

**Starting July 9th, 2020**No photo description available.

SUICIDE as a Language Of Pain SUPPORT GROUP

FOR SURVIVORS BY SURVIVORS!!

Do you ever just want to be able to talk about what’s happening and not be afraid to share? Come join others who live with the pain and want to share hope with each other without judgement or fear of reaction.

Who: Survivors!

Anyone who has ever tried to die by suicide and/or anyone living with thoughts/visions/plans or dreams of suicide; people who want a place to talk about it and feel heard!

What: S.L.O.P. is a 90 minute meeting designed and facilitated by survivors for survivors! It provides a space for individuals to come together so they can share their experience, strength and hope!

Why: “Just Talk About It”

Many of us have learned to keep our experiences hidden for fear of others trying to “fix us”, force us to take medications or go into the hospital. As a result, we sometimes feel alone with no one we can trust to just talk about it.

IPS (Intentional Peer Support) principles guide our open conversations about living as a survivor.

When: Every Thursday @ 12pm-1:30pm PST (90 minutes) !

12 — 1pm PST (60 minutes)

Readings, topic discussion, open shares

1 — 1:30pm PST (30 minutes)

Optional time for decompression

GriefShare is here to help during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Grief support groups are now meeting online, so you can get the support you need from the safety of your own home.  We are launching our new Summer Support series, which will cover topics including COVID-19 & Grief, Anxiety & Grief, Dealing with Loneliness, Establishing a New Life in Your Grief.

GriefShare is a faith-based friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone.

Thousands of GriefShare support groups meet weekly around the world. Visit or join a group at anytime. And attend as many meetings as you like.  GriefShare groups have a 13 week cycle, but you are welcome to begin attending at any session.  You will find encouragement and help whenever you begin. You will be able to continue with GriefShare through the next 13-week cycle and view any videos you have not seen.

Each week your GriefShare group will watch a video seminar featuring top experts on grief and recovery subjects. These videos are produced in an interesting television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies, dramatic reenactments, and on-location video.

Support group discussion with focus
After viewing the video, you and the other group members will spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in your lives.

Personal study and reflection
During the week you will have the opportunity to use your workbook for further personal study of the grieving process and to help sort out your emotions through journaling. Your group will spend time discussing questions and comments from the workbook study.

Jul 11 all-day

Clackamas County has initiated Go Teams to help community members struggling with stress and anxiety during this Coronavirus / COVID-19 pandemic – available by phone 24/7 (24 hours per day, 7 days per week) at: 503-655-8585.

See article on KPTV at: https://www.kptv.com/news/go-teams-clackamas-co-launches-program-to-help-people-struggling-with-stress-anxiety-during-covid/article_d3383498-897f-11ea-9c43-9b4da6c01dc7.html

“Go Teams” wear protective gear and can go into the community and meet with the person who is struggling and listen to their story.  They are trained in psychological first aid which is described as “a provider going to connect with an individual by really listening and showing empathy,” but “[it] is not therapy or case management…[or] crisis mental health services.”

Weekdays 12pm-7pm PST except holidays

Welcome to Reach Out Oregon!

Parents know how it can be lonely, frightening and isolating to care for a young person experiencing emotional, behavioral and mental health challenges. It can be hard to figure out where and how to reach out for help and information. Most of us feel disoriented when trying to find needed support for what our family is facing.  Shame and stigma surrounding these issues can make it even more challenging.

As caregivers ourselves, we have direct lived experience navigating challenges on behalf of our children and families. And as a community, we have much to offer one another. This is what Reach Out Oregon is all about, a supportive community where you will find:

  • Inspiration
  • Connection
  • Compassion
  • Support

  Family Self-Care during COVID-19

  • Have a special friendly online conversation about Family Self-Care during COVID-19.
  • More events coming, stay tuned.
  • Learn about fun activities to bring back to your family.

Welcome to Reach Out Oregon!

Parents know how it can be lonely, frightening and isolating to care for a young person experiencing emotional, behavioral and mental health challenges. It can be hard to figure out where and how to reach out for help and information. Most of us feel disoriented when trying to find needed support for what our family is facing.  Shame and stigma surrounding these issues can make it even more challenging.

As caregivers ourselves, we have direct lived experience navigating challenges on behalf of our children and families. And as a community, we have much to offer one another. This is what Reach Out Oregon is all about, a supportive community where you will find:

  • Inspiration
  • Connection
  • Compassion
  • Support

  Family Self-Care during COVID-19

  • Have a special friendly online conversation about Family Self-Care during COVID-19.
  • More events coming, stay tuned.
  • Learn about fun activities to bring back to your family.

GriefShare is for people grieving the death of a family member or friend.

GriefShare is here to help during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Grief support groups are now meeting online, so you can get the support you need from the safety of your own home.  We are launching our new Summer Support series, which will cover topics including COVID-19 & Grief, Anxiety & Grief, Dealing with Loneliness, Establishing a New Life in Your Grief.

GriefShare is a faith-based friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone.

Thousands of GriefShare support groups meet weekly around the world. Visit or join a group at anytime. And attend as many meetings as you like.  GriefShare groups have a 13 week cycle, but you are welcome to begin attending at any session.  You will find encouragement and help whenever you begin. You will be able to continue with GriefShare through the next 13-week cycle and view any videos you have not seen.

Each week your GriefShare group will watch a video seminar featuring top experts on grief and recovery subjects. These videos are produced in an interesting television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies, dramatic reenactments, and on-location video.

Support group discussion with focus
After viewing the video, you and the other group members will spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in your lives.

Personal study and reflection
During the week you will have the opportunity to use your workbook for further personal study of the grieving process and to help sort out your emotions through journaling. Your group will spend time discussing questions and comments from the workbook study.

Clackamas County has initiated Go Teams to help community members struggling with stress and anxiety during this Coronavirus / COVID-19 pandemic – available by phone 24/7 (24 hours per day, 7 days per week) at: 503-655-8585.

See article on KPTV at: https://www.kptv.com/news/go-teams-clackamas-co-launches-program-to-help-people-struggling-with-stress-anxiety-during-covid/article_d3383498-897f-11ea-9c43-9b4da6c01dc7.html

SLOP – Suic. Language of Pain – Support Group with Angel Prater at Folktime – Thursdays @ Online via Zoom
Jul 16 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

SUICIDE as a Language Of Pain SUPPORT GROUP

FOR SURVIVORS BY SURVIVORS!!

**Starting July 9th, 2020**No photo description available.

SUICIDE as a Language Of Pain SUPPORT GROUP

FOR SURVIVORS BY SURVIVORS!!

Do you ever just want to be able to talk about what’s happening and not be afraid to share? Come join others who live with the pain and want to share hope with each other without judgement or fear of reaction.

Who: Survivors!

Anyone who has ever tried to die by suicide and/or anyone living with thoughts/visions/plans or dreams of suicide; people who want a place to talk about it and feel heard!

What: S.L.O.P. is a 90 minute meeting designed and facilitated by survivors for survivors! It provides a space for individuals to come together so they can share their experience, strength and hope!

Why: “Just Talk About It”

Many of us have learned to keep our experiences hidden for fear of others trying to “fix us”, force us to take medications or go into the hospital. As a result, we sometimes feel alone with no one we can trust to just talk about it.

IPS (Intentional Peer Support) principles guide our open conversations about living as a survivor.

When: Every Thursday @ 12pm-1:30pm PST (90 minutes) !

12 — 1pm PST (60 minutes)

Readings, topic discussion, open shares

1 — 1:30pm PST (30 minutes)

Optional time for decompression

Where:

Welcome to Reach Out Oregon!

Parents know how it can be lonely, frightening and isolating to care for a young person experiencing emotional, behavioral and mental health challenges. It can be hard to figure out where and how to reach out for help and information. Most of us feel disoriented when trying to find needed support for what our family is facing.  Shame and stigma surrounding these issues can make it even more challenging.

As caregivers ourselves, we have direct lived experience navigating challenges on behalf of our children and families. And as a community, we have much to offer one another. This is what Reach Out Oregon is all about, a supportive community where you will find:

  • Inspiration

SLOP – Suic. Language of Pain – Support Group with Angel Prater at Folktime – Thursdays @ Online via Zoom
Jul 23 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

SUICIDE as a Language Of Pain SUPPORT GROUP

FOR SURVIVORS BY SURVIVORS!!

**Starting July 9th, 2020**No photo description available.

SUICIDE as a Language Of Pain SUPPORT GROUP

FOR SURVIVORS BY SURVIVORS!!

Do you ever just want to be able to talk about what’s happening and not be afraid to share? Come join others who live with the pain and want to share hope with each other without judgement or fear of reaction.

Who: Survivors!

Anyone who has ever tried to die by suicide and/or anyone living with thoughts/visions/plans or dreams of suicide; people who want a place to talk about it and feel heard!

What: S.L.O.P. is a 90 minute meeting designed and facilitated by survivors for survivors! It provides a space for individuals to come together so they can share their experience, strength and hope!

Why: “Just Talk About It”

Many of us have learned to keep our experiences hidden for fear of others trying to “fix us”, force us to take medications or go into the hospital. As a result, we sometimes feel alone with no one we can trust to just talk about it.

IPS (Intentional Peer Support) principles guide our open conversations about living as a survivor.

When: Every Thursday @ 12pm-1:30pm PST (90 minutes) !

12 — 1pm PST (60 minutes)

Readings, topic discussion, open shares

1 — 1:30pm PST (30 minutes)

Optional time for decompression

GriefShare is for people grieving the death of a family member or friend.

GriefShare is here to help during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Grief support groups are now meeting online, so you can get the support you need from the safety of your own home.  We are launching our new Summer Support series, which will cover topics including COVID-19 & Grief, Anxiety & Grief, Dealing with Loneliness, Establishing a New Life in Your Grief.

GriefShare is a faith-based friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone.

Thousands of GriefShare support groups meet weekly around the world. Visit or join a group at anytime. And attend as many meetings as you like.  GriefShare groups have a 13 week cycle, but you are welcome to begin attending at any session.  You will find encouragement and help whenever you begin. You will be able to continue with GriefShare through the next 13-week cycle and view any videos you have not seen.

Each week your GriefShare group will watch a video seminar featuring top experts on grief and recovery subjects. These videos are produced in an interesting television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies, dramatic reenactments, and on-location video.

Support group discussion with focus
After viewing the video, you and the other group members will spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in your lives.

Personal study and reflection
During the week you will have the opportunity to use your workbook for further personal study of the grieving process and to help sort out your emotions through journaling. Your group will spend time discussing questions and comments from the workbook study.

Find a GriefShare support group or event near you.

Image may contain: text that says 'ZIA Young Adult Access Center'

The Zia Young Adult Access Center provides peer support for young adults ages 16-22.  We offer youth-held and peer-run, community spaces, groups, and events.  Zia prioritizes youth autonomy, liberation, and support. Our concentrations are to support young adults who express and self-identify with different human experiences (societal and/or social class impacts like trauma, mental health, and substance use).

We offer support and advocacy for young adults and require no registration, referral, or health insurance.  All of our peer support is FREE of cost and is intended to be accessible.

As a peer-led group, our aim is to offer self-determined resource connections (education, employment, family support, and more).

Welcome to Reach Out Oregon!

Parents know how it can be lonely, frightening and isolating to care for a young person experiencing emotional, behavioral and mental health challenges. It can be hard to figure out where and how to reach out for help and information. Most of us feel disoriented when trying to find needed support for what our family is facing.  Shame and stigma surrounding these issues can make it even more challenging.

As caregivers ourselves, we have direct lived experience navigating challenges on behalf of our children and families. And as a community, we have much to offer one another. This is what Reach Out Oregon is all about, a supportive community where you will find:

  • Inspiration
  • Connection
  • Compassion
  • Support
