Our mission is to offer education, support, and advocacy to those affected by mental illness and to their families and friends. We hope to reduce stigmatization of these illnesses by providing factual information. Our website offers information about our services and links to other websites that may help provide information you may find helpful.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Chardon today.

The anniversary of a tragic event can make the healing process more difficult. The process is a personal and highly individual experience. How you heal depends on many factors, including your personality and coping style, your life experience, your faith, and the nature of the loss. The grieving process takes time. Healing happens gradually; it can’t be forced or hurried—and there is no “normal” timetable for grieving. Some people start to feel better in months. For others, the grieving process is measured in years. Whatever your grief experience, it’s important to be patient with yourself and allow the process to naturally unfold.
Talking about what you feel may be difficult, but it will help you heal.
Just as you may find it difficult to face your feelings head on, you may also find it difficult to express those feelings. But getting them out is essential. Talking with a calm, caring person is best, but expressing your feelings through journaling, art, and other creative outlets can also help. If you are having difficulty with this anniversary the COPELine is a 24 hour link to help. Call 440-285-5665 or 1-888-285-5665.
