What services does SLAP’D provide?

SLAP’D is not, by any means, a substitute for professional grief and bereavement services. Instead, we are a supplement – we recognize that peer support and shared experience are an integral part of the healing process, a need not often met or addressed by professional grief counselors. SLAP’D aims to fill this gap with our online community.

SLAP’D offers teens who have lost a parent a place to connect with other teens who share their experience and understand what they’re going through. Our site offers articles by teens, for teens about various grief-related topics, as well as a place to seek advice or ask “embarrassing” questions to bereavement professionals. We also strive to provide support and resources to adults – parents, teachers, counselors, etc. – who are supporting grieving teens.

  1. My granddaughters aged 14 & 12 lost their father 2 years ago to suicide. Life is difficult for them. Any chance they could touch base with you?
