Brotherhood of Bereavement

Strengthening men and boys through healing.


Welcome to Broreavement

Losing a loved one can be the most challenging time in a man’s life. It can be hard to talk about, hard to share, and hard to navigate. Broreavement is a support network that offers a safe place for men and boys to express their feelings, connect with others who are facing the same loss, and find comfort in shared experiences.

Who We Are

Broreavement is a community of men who are navigating the turbulent waters of grief. We believe in the healing power of sharing experiences and offering mutual support to cope with the loss of a loved one. Our mission is to help men find the strength to move forward without forgetting the ones they’ve lost.


What We Do:

Through a variety of programs and services, Broreavement offers practical support and emotional guidance to those griefing the loss of a loved one. Our initiatives include:

Grief Support Workshops: We organize workshops tailored to the needs of men and boys of color, providing them with tools and resources to navigate the grieving process.

Recreational Activities: We host recreational outings and activities aimed at promoting healing and fostering a sense of community among participants.

Educational Resources: We provide resources and educational materials to help individuals understand and cope with grief, empowering them to develop healthy coping mechanisms.


It’s estimated that 1.5 million children (5% of children in the United States) have lost one or both parents by age 15.

Over 5 million U.S. children will experience the death of a parent or sibling by the time they are 18.

1/5 U.S. children are grieving the death of someone close to them.

A full 70% of Americans believe that today people are more open about issues of death and dying than they were 5-10 years ago.

Childhood grief is associated with: developmental disruptions, including relationship, academic, and career functioning; substance abuse; mental health challenges, including depression and suicide; and poverty.

Approximately 10–15% of bereaved people are diagnosed with prolonged grief disorder due to an inability to transition from acute grief to integrated grief.


In 2020, suicide was the third leading cause of death, respectively, for blacks or African Americans, ages 15 to 24.

The death rate from suicide for black or African American men was four times greater than for African American women, in 2018.

The overall suicide rate for black or African Americans was 60 percent lower than that of the non-Hispanic white population, in 2018.
Black females, grades 9-12, were 60 percent more likely to attempt suicide in 2019, as compared to non-Hispanic white females of the same age.
Poverty level affects mental health status. Black or African Americans living below the poverty level, as compared to those over twice the poverty level, are twice as likely to report serious psychological distress.
A report from the U.S. Surgeon General found that from 1980 – 1995, the suicide rate among African Americans ages 10 to 14 increased 233 percentage, as compared to 120 percent of non-Hispanic whites.
