MENTAL HEALTH DISCLAIMER:
The loss of an animal companion can lead to challenging emotional responses that warrant professional mental health support which is beyond the scope and training of the Lap of Love Pet Loss Resource Line staff. While we are here to provide compassionate grief support, we are unable to appropriately evaluate human mental health concerns and do not provide mental health counseling. The services of the Pet Loss Resource Line are not intended to directly support or provide a substitute for definitive mental health care, especially in a crisis. We may be able to help you find pet loss support resources in your area, but we cannot provide referrals to specific mental health services.
If you or someone you’re concerned about is depressed, unable to cope, or having thoughts of self-harm or harming others, IMMEDIATELY call 911 for local emergency service, or call:
