Spread Hope

In order for us to continue our mission supporting children and families coping with death on Cape Cod, we rely on people like you through donations and sponsorships.

We Provide Hope

We at Good Grief Cape Cod believe in one simple truth. We believe our project provides “hope for healing.”

We Educate Communities

We educate communities about grief studies around death, including workshops by professionals.

We Teach Coping Skills

We can't protect our children from the reality of death, but we can help them cope in constructive ways.

We Build Lending Libraries

Death and tragedy themed bibliotherapy books, activities, music & art therapy kits, and much more.

What is Good Grief Cape Cod

In a culture that often avoids talking about loss, Good Grief Cape Cod holds a great emphasis on and support for research that children of all ages do grieve.

Our mission is to promote positive change to how we as a society respond to grief by providing community engagement opportunities, sharing information and educational workshops that will provide our community with ways to help children and families cope with death.

Amy Caspersen Wyman

Founder, CEO

Amy Wyman, founder and music therapist, holds a duel Baccalaureate degree in Early Childhood Education and Child Life from Wheelock College and an M.A. in Expressive Art Therapies with a specialization in Music Therapy from Lesley University.

Amy spends most of her spare time focused on using her talents and resources to help her local community. From her music therapy business Tones in Motion, which bridges the generational gap between the elderly and the youth, to her Good Grief workshops and fundraisers, she's always finding ways to make this community, and the world, a better place.

The events occurring around the world for the younger generations to cope with, is unimaginable, specifically regarding death and tragedy. Disasters, whether triggered by Mother Nature or by humanity itself, fall upon us day after day, killing and injuring thousands of people at a time.

Among these disasters, one hits home for many children and families here on Cape Cod. The human toll of the drug epidemic continues to plague the Cape and Islands. Children and families are left behind to grieve their loved ones.

Using my varied educational and therapuetic background, and my training as a Certified Creative Grief Support Coach, I will work with local professionals and volunteers to provide support to the larger Cape Cod community.

If you're interested in our mission or in working with me, please reach out!
