For immediate release: 2 September 2023
Griefity, a forward-thinking startup committed to leveraging technology in the realm of grief support, is thrilled to announce the launch of its much-anticipated “Grief Support Study.” This innovative research initiative is poised to illuminate the nuances of the grief support journey, with a core focus on understanding the support provided to individuals grappling with loss.
The Grief Support Study: Spotlight on the Grief Support Journey
Grief is a profound and universal human experience, a path that many traverse but one that remains deeply personal to each individual.
The Grief Support Study invites individuals who have experienced grief to share their stories, experiences, and insights. By doing so, participants will contribute to a comprehensive body of knowledge aimed at better understanding the grief journey and improving the support resources available.
Key Objectives of the Study:
- Explore the diverse experiences encountered in grief support.
- Identify the challenges and coping mechanisms individuals employ when grieving.
- Inform the development of more targeted grief support resources.
Approach and Methodology:
The study is being facilitated by our founder and senior Experience Researcher, Corinne Davies. Responses are provided in survey format and can be given anonymously. There is also the option for participants to opt-in to a 45 minute interview to provide further context. We are offering a NZD$40 (USD$25) gift card as a thank you for those that participate in an interview.
Collaboration and Insights Sharing:
Griefity firmly believes in the power of collaboration and community. All personally identifiable information will be removed and summary findings made available to all participating individuals and organisations. This approach will enable organisations to refine their support services and resources, better addressing the needs of those they serve. Results of the study are anticipated in early 2024.
How to Participate:
Participation in the Grief Support Study is open to anyone who has experienced grief. To make a meaningful contribution to this research and to help advance the understanding and support of the grief journey, interested individuals can visit https://griefity.com/grief-and-loss-study/ for more details.
