Welcome to Good Griever! I’m Vonne Solís. I started this blog so that whether you are new to grief or have been living with it for years, you will find information and resources here to support you in a variety of ways. One thing is certain. There’s always something new to learn about grief and share with others.
As a bereaved mom of a daughter who died by suicide in 2005, it’s been my desire to help others grieving. Having spent years trying to find inner peace, I remain passionate about sharing whatever information I learn to help others on their healing journey. You can read more about what I do at www.vonnesolis.com.
When my daughter died at age 22, this type of public space wasn’t available. Today, we can freely access information online about what grief is really like and part of my mission is to make this information available. Not only does this empower you as a griever in your journey to heal, but it also contributes to a cultural shift in awareness and attitude that can lead to better support for the bereaved. Everyone, one day, will be a griever. We need to start talking more openly about death and grief.
In June 2018, I spoke at the first ever conference for the bereaved in Ottawa, Canada. My topic was Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in Grief. The room was packed. It was clear people wanted and need more information about all aspects of the grief experience.
On this blog and now on my podcast, it remains my passion to share information and resources on a variety of topics related to loss and grief to inform, inspire and empower you through your own healing journey.
