Our Mission

Changing the landscape and language of grief

The Good Grief Project is the brainchild of bereaved parents Jane Harris and Jimmy Edmonds whose son Josh died in a road accident in Vietnam in 2011. Jane is a psychotherapist and Jimmy is a filmmaker.

Our mission is to support families grieving after the untimely death of a loved one, particularly the death of a son or daughter of any age. And to promote an understanding of what it means to grieve in a society that often has difficulty talking openly about death, dying and bereavement.

Our own response to Josh’s death has been to use both the still and the moving image to articulate our grief. We now want to help you to find your way of expressing your grief.
