Presented by the TAPS Institute for Hope and Healing®, this webinar with Litsa Williams and Eleanor Haley, mental health professionals and co-founders of What’s Your Grief, is designed to help bereaved people understand the dynamics of this unique kind of grief.  It addresses the unique stigma and family dynamics that can come with grief after a death from substance use, and it delves into issues that begin to influence survivors' experience of grief and loss long before a death occurs, such as struggling with a loved one's substance use disorder.
