Navigating grief and difficult feelings – some offerings

by lauren liu 劉寶恩, lcswjan. 2023

lauren is the special projects coordinator at cpa. as a mental health practitioner and healer, lauren has brought these skills to hold space for youth, young adults, and other community members and organizers.

As our communities continue to grieve, mourn, and heal, we wanted to make this offering to our community members. We hope these frameworks, reminders, and practices can give you tools to process grief in these hard times.

We are working on translating this document into Chinese.  If you have questions, please contact

If you also hold space for others, we want to share this piece “Tips and Reminders when holding space to support others” that we developed in March 2021 to support CPA staff who were supporting our Chinese immigrant and youth grassroots members. Download below in English and Chinese.
