17 Grief Support Innovations

From Digital Afterlife Art to Conversational Mortality Games

— May 19, 2015 — Lifestyle
These grief support innovations range from digital afterlife installations to conversational mortality games that are designed to help children and adults understand the loss of a loved one. Dealing with death is never easy but these social media sites, board games and symbolic art projects encourage mutual grief support among those who have experienced loss in their lifetime.

Standouts include 'My Gift of Grace,' a board game that teaches children about life and death through a series of conversational flashcards. The game is not only effective for young generations but also gives adults an opportunity to share their feelings and thoughts about mortality with others.

Other memorable examples from this list include DNA-infused keepsakes and web memorial services that let grieving individuals participate in an online support group.
