A diagnosis of dementia is difficult for patients and for their caregivers too. We're proud to be working with Relish, a UK organization doing great work to create and facilitate activities that can be fulfilling and enjoyable ways for caregivers to spend time with their loved ones.
At Help Texts we're on a mission to make mental health and bereavement care accessible and affordable for all. As we look to scale our impact as a public benefit corporation, we're considering launching a community raise with Wefunder, a crowdfunding platform that will give our community an opportunity to own part of our company. If you think this is something you might consider, please take 30 seconds (literally!) to complete this survey. There's no commitment but hearing from our community will help us decide whether or not to raise money this way.
At Help Texts we are deeply committed to making grief, caregiver, and mental health support accessible, equitable and affordable.
April 3-9 is National Public Health Week, and an opportunity to recognize that bereavement care is healthcare. When we're grieving we're at increased risk for negative health outcomes such as depression, anxiety, sleep issues, illness, suicidal ideation and behaviors, and more. But when we receive even a small amount of support and understanding, many of us can avoid those negative outcomes. Here at Help Texts we are honored to be working with leading researchers around the world who recognize that grief-informed text support is an effective public health intervention.

Here at Help Texts we've been providing ongoing, expert text-based grief support for four years. We’ve seen how helpful and impactful text support can be when people are grieving, and have also been listening to our healthcare clients who are looking for affordable, easy ways to support their employees, many of whom are experiencing burnout and fatigue, and are looking for training and support as they care for grieving patients and family members.

Grief Coach founder Emma Payne and Head of Bereavement Melissa Lunardini sat down with UK psychotherapist Liz Gleeson on her podcast, Shapes of Grief. Throughout their conversation, they touched upon six pain points grieving people have and the unique ways Grief Coach texts offer support.
People who've experienced the death of a significant person often tell us that support drops off sharply after the first year. At Help Texts, we believe grievers deserve grief support for a lifetime of loss, not just in the early days of "survival mode". That's why we've written a series of help texts specifically for what we call "long ago loss."
Thanks to Sue Ryder, all UK residents can receive free grief support through Grief Coach texts.
