Healing hearts together - Mothers in grief find support

Healing Hearts is a support group in Singapore dedicated to mothers who have lost their children to suicide, helping them.

Group Support

Singaporean Elaine Lek, who lost her son, Zen, to suicide in 2018, needed a support group dedicated to mothers grieving the loss of children who took their lives. As none existed in Singapore, she encouraged her therapist Geraldine Tan to start an informal therapy group. 

Through Healing Hearts, mothers have the “opportunity to come together to speak freely about the pain that they are going through,” says Geraldine. Relying only on word-of-mouth, about eight mothers are attending these free, monthly 90-minute sessions regularly.
