Three tips to supporting your Mental Health Through Grief 🤍

At the Lily Mae Foundation, we understand the profound impact that baby loss can have on mental well-being. To guide you through Mental Health Awareness Week, we're highlighting three ways to support your mental health through grief and how we are here to help you.

1. Get Active 🚴‍♀️🏌️‍♂️⛷🏃🏽‍♀️

Engaging in physical activity is a powerful tool for managing grief and promoting mental well-being. At the Lily Mae Foundation, we offer various fundraising events throughout the year that provide opportunities to get active while supporting our cause. Whether it's a charity run, walk, or other event, participating in these activities can help channel emotions, boost endorphins, and create a sense of community among participants and fellow bereaved parents.

2. Talk 🗣💬

One of the most significant challenges of grief is often the feeling of isolation. Talking about your feelings and experiences can be incredibly therapeutic. At the Lily Mae Foundation, we provide both group and one-on-one support for individuals navigating the complexities of baby loss. Our support groups offer a safe and understanding environment where you can share your journey and connect with others who understand you. To read more about the different groups we offer click here.

Whether you're seeking solace, validation or practical advice, our support services are here to help you through every step of your grieving process.

3. Listen👂🎧

Sometimes the weight of grief can make it difficult to find the right words to express how you're feeling. In such moments, listening can be just as beneficial as speaking. The Still Parents Podcast, our very own baby loss support Podcast offers a source of comfort and companionship for those navigating the grief of baby loss. Through intimate conversations, personal stories, and expert insights, the podcast provides a space for reflection, validation, and hope. Whether you're actively grieving or supporting a loved one through their journey, tuning in to the Still Parents Podcast can offer a sense of solidarity and understanding. Click here to listen now
