Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) Program

SIDS/SUID Peer Grief Support Services in California

Throughout California non-profit volunteer peer support groups offer an array of services for those experiencing an infant loss due to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) or other sudden unexpected infant death (SUID). Volunteers are trained SIDS/SUID parents, family members, foster parents and/or childcare providers who have received specialized grief training to assist other bereaved individuals. Services include bereavement support groups, individual peer counseling and/or online support. Please contact the local grief group directly to inquire about meeting times/location and to obtain further information about their support and services.
