Apps for Grief Support

Grief Refuge

Grief Refuge is a daily companion to help navigate your grief journey. The app helps create safe, and sacred space to explore grief related feelings, learn helpful ways to cope, and find peace and purpose after loss. Features include daily reflections, intention setting, stories from people who have found healing in their grief, and a tool for tracking 'progress'. Grief Refuge is the source of solace and comfort for the lonely and isolating journey of grief.

Good Grief – Chat & Messaging

“Goodgrief is the social network for loss. Finally, there’s a free network where grieving people can privately connect, chat, and support each other in finding a new normal…. Co-founders Kim and Robynne know first hand that grief is hard. All too often, people are left to navigate the emotional roller coaster alone. Finding others who personally understand loss makes all the difference. Together, they’ve developed a platform to help connect those in need… Goodgrief is for people ages 18 and up. Goodgrief works by putting you in touch with others who lost their spouse, parent, sibling, child, relative, or friend due to a variety of causes. Create a private profile by answering questions related to your loss. Then, connect to other people through a one-on-one in-app texting service. Your private information is never seen publicly, and chats are private and secure. Additional filters narrow your connections by age, gender, religion, time frame, and type and cause of loss. Start chatting today. If you or someone you know needs this app, join our community. You are not alone.”

Grief Works

Drawing on Julia Samuel’s 30 years of experience as a leading grief therapist and based off her best-selling book of the same name, the Grief Works app was specifically designed to effectively address the full range of emotions surrounding grief. Just like having the guidance of a therapist, the app pairs Samuel’s advice with actionable practices and exercises, gently nudging users to record and examine their own thoughts and feelings. The app also offers more than 30 interactive tools users can turn to whenever they’re overwhelmed by their emotions, including breathing visualization exercises, guided meditations, daily gratitude check-ins, prompted evening reflections, and more.
