i understand is a non-profit organization that offers compassionate comfort, hope and understanding to those living with a mental/brain health illness or have lost a loved one to death by suicide. We believe in a future where the stigma associated with mental/brain health and suicide is erased. We have created a definition petition to change the narrative and views surrounding suicide to an accurate and updated definition.
The simple change in language will help bring understanding to something so difficult to understand. The change includes removing stigmatized words, recognizing the illness and understanding pain is the common denominator of all suicides. Our work includes bringing the conversation to everyday places to normalize, support groups, training program, resources, speaking engagements, the 'Behind the Smile' podcast, the book, i understand pain, love and healing after suicide and so much more.
For more than 20 years, the Men's Resource Center of West Michigan has helped men live better lives. Our wide range of counseling, assessment, consultation, evaluation, and therapy services can be tailored to meet a variety of needs. Our highly trained counselors and therapists provide unique and valuable individual counseling services for many issues that affect men in their daily lives. We provide effective counseling and therapy for everything from parenting skills to questions about intimacy; sex addiction to anger management; mid-life crisis to legal problems or grief and loss.
We offer a wide array of men's counseling and support groups as well. Males — both young and old —have opportunities for support, education, challenge, and growth. These groups are particularly effective in treating men's mental, emotional, and relational health issues in a way that participants find growth producing. Although some men may be initially reluctant to enter a support group, they quickly become comfortable in the setting and enjoy the interaction with other men who face similar personal struggles.
