Don't Let Grief Crush You! A Survivor's Guide Through Grief, Loss, and Trauma

Updated: 2 days ago

Survivor's Guide

Detroit, MI - Vessels of Hope Ministries, in collaboration with District of Change and Trauma Recovery Coach & Friends, is proud to announce a transformative workshop series aimed at guiding individuals through the challenges of grief, loss, and trauma, entitled: "Don't Let Grief Crush You! A Survivor's Guide Through Grief, Loss, and Trauma.”


As we recognize May as Mental Health Awareness Month, District For Change and Vessels of Hope Outreach Ministries, a non-profit and faith-based organization deeply committed to promoting mental health awareness and holistic wellness within our communities. The workshop series offers a unique approach to emotional healing through evidence-based mental health practices and holistic wellness.


District For Change utilizes a unique healing methodology combining evidence-based mental health practices and principles, and Vessels of Hope Outreach Ministries equip faith-based organizations, public safety agencies, and community members with the tools and resources to manage traumatic experiences, intervene in wellness emergencies, and make direct referrals to services. We believe that far too often; people suffer in silence due to shame and embarrassment.


Through our partnerships with the United Way of Southeastern Michigan, the City of Detroit Department of Health & Human Services, Detroit Police, and the Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries, we have trained over 1,000 key stakeholders in mental health, suicide prevention, intimate partner violence, adverse childhood experiences, and peer support for loss survivors since 2018.
