At Brewer and Sons we are always looking to better assist our families and provide the best resources and services possible. One of the hardest parts of our industry, is working with heartbroken families on the daily basis. Being there for our families, emotionally and psychologically is our number one priority.
The facts are as follows: “In the U.S., 8 million people suffered through the death of someone in their immediate family last year; 800,000 new widows and widowers; 400,000 people under 25 suffered from the death of a loved one” (National Mental Health Association) and “1.2 million children will lose a parent to death before age 15 “(Dr. Elizabeth Weller, Dir. Ohio State University Hospitals, 1991)
Each family and person will grief differently and will handle everything to come in their individual manner. Grief is more than just an emotional reaction; it entails physical, behavioral, and cognitive responses as well. Dealing with the loss of loved one is truly unbearable, and can create disruptions socially, physically and mentally. Some will grief and will eventually learn how work through their feelings and be done. Some will grief and eventually seek help; others wont and will remain silent and alone. There are so many people struggling in the shadows; so many people in despair and completely alone. Embarrassed and most likely confused, because they do not understand why they feel the way they feel. Lets end the STIGMA. It is OK to talk about how we are feeling and seek help if needed. Mental Illness is real and there is so many support groups and resources available.
We are proud to announce our partnership with the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Founded in 1979, NAMI is nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting mental health wellness through education, support, advocacy, empowerment and outreach. NAMI is the nation’s largest grassroots organization dedicating to improving the lives of persons living or struggling with serious mental illness and their families. They are dedicated to improving the lives of individuals and families affected by grief management, major depression, post traumatic stress, panic disorder, OCD, ADHD, autism, schizophrenia, bipolarity and borderline personality. They provide support groups, weekly events and service; which are all absolutely free of charge and open to the public.
Change starts from within. Believe it or not; you can make a difference. If you or someone you know is struggling with any of these disorders take action and act NOW. Stand up and Speak UP!
