During Lunar New Year, while Asian families celebrate hope and prosperity, it can be challenging to reckon with losses connected to family, roots, and/or culture in the US. Find support with MESO.

During Lunar New Year, families gather to celebrate hope and prosperity. For Asians in America, it can be challenging to reckon with losses and ensuing grief connected to family, roots, and/or culture alongside more diasporic experiences.

Join us and find support and community navigating major and minor feelings related to loss and grief, the dynamics of immigrant families, cultural bereavement, and the pressure of the holidays to name a few...

Tida Beattie and Soyeon Davis are trained end-of-life doulas, grief mentors, and guides of peer grief support spaces.

Tida and Soyeon are daughters of Thai and Korean immigrants, respectively. They have co-founded MESO because of their personal experiences witnessing critical gaps in the health, death, and grief care systems throughout their parents' lives. Their work is focused on providing culturally attuned resources and support to immigrant families, their caregivers, and their grievers addressing care, loss, death and grief.
