Family members over the age 18 who have experienced a loss can volunteer to become participants in the study.

Volunteers will be randomly assigned to one of two programs, GriefSteps or WellnessSteps. Once enrolled, participants will have access to their assigned program for six months and will be asked to provide feedback about their experience.

Enrollment is open through June 30.

You can sign up by going to and clicking “Enroll Now.” You’ll be asked to answer screening questions, to fill out an online consent form, and to complete a 20-minute survey. Once your application is submitted, you will be called by study personnel to complete a screening and enrollment.
