"The weekend has been the most helpful thing I have done." GrabLife Guest
Providing activity support weekends and ongoing peer support for bereaved young adults (18-30), helping them identify signs of grief and embrace the future.
Due to the challenge of college or a new career, or the fact that they're away from family support networks with friends enjoying their 20s, young adults tend to receive little understanding and support when they are bereaved. They can feel isolated as they grieve or alternatively suppress their feelings, assuming the death has had little or no affect. AtaLoss.org is therefore providing activity support weekends, specially designed for 18-30 year olds who have suffered bereavement at any time in their life, whether or not there is current emotional pain.
The weekends include different outdoor activities, such as climbing, canoeing, archery and mountain biking and offer the opportunity of stepping away from the daily pressures of life to meet with others in similar situations, channel feelings through adventurous activities, learn about grief and its affects now and in the future, receive support and be inspired. Watch the video below to hear 2019 GrabLife participants talk about their experience and how they benefitted from the weekend.
