Grieving Parents

ATKINSON – Bereaved Parents/ USA is a nationwide organization designed to aid and support bereaved parents and their families who are struggling to survive their grief after the death of a child. Their goals are to educate families about the grief process and all its complexities as it applies to the death of child at any age and from any cause, to aid and support those who are suffering such a loss, regardless of race, creed or financial situation, and to provide a library at each meeting place where members may borrow books with up-to-date information about the grief process.

BP/USA exists because most families feel a need, after they have endured the most severe of life’s crisis, to have some order restored in their lives. Families who attend are parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles. We are able to provide resources for siblings.

The Rock/Essex chapter of the Bereaved Parents/USA holds monthly meetings at the Atkinson Community Center, 4 Main St, Rte 121 (across from the post office), Atkinson, for parents of Rockingham NH county and Essex Ma county. The meetings are held the first Tuesday of every month from 7:00-8:30 p.m. Due to the elections this November, the next meeting will be held on Tues., November 13. The meetings are free to attend.

Please contact Beth Hendershot at 603-887-4302/603-401-3348, bethschool@comcast.net or Gayle Brady at 603-642-7979/603-770-8291, GBrady6@aol.com for further information.
