BEREAVED PARENTS

The Compassionate Friends
We are so sorry you have reason to read this page. But we hope you find guidance and a glimmer of hope here.
A national Self-help group for bereaved families with Chapters located across the U.S
This page was created because often parents come to us in their hour of crisis, not knowing what to do. And justly so, losing a child is every parents worst nightmare. No one thinks it will happen to them - it is just unnatural. If you would like to talk directly with a support parent please contact us and we will help buddy you with a parent who has suffered a similar loss but is a years into their grief.

Seek out people who you trust that you can be yourself and feel the range of emotions that come with this loss: Counseling, Friends, Support Groups are all great places to start. There are several places on the net where Parents are available, check out the Facebook link  or the Yahoo! Groups link (on the left) to get connected with other families right now .


 
 
Your health (both physical and mental) should be the priority.  The most important action to take for creating awareness is to place your child's name in the database. The database is the main source of proving how deadly and how immense this issue truly is.
 
 
 

Talk about your story to anyone that will listen, share it with your local media and if the opportunity arises (and you feel up to it) speak to the school district of your child about education of the Choking Game. Chances are, your child is not the only one to know about it.  DBF is experienced and more than willing to help you in any of these instances.



 
In the first months of grief you will probably receive the Death Certificate. If you disagree with the ruling, many cases are misruled as suicide initially,  we can share with you sucessful action taken by others  towards amending. There is no time limit as to when you can request to amend a Death Certificate.
