59 Years Of Supporting Families

Healing Together, a program of Northwest Infant Survival & SIDS Alliance (NISSA), has provided support to those affected by an infant loss in the Northwest since 1961. It is not just what we do; it’s who we are. We are proud of the past 59 years and are looking forward to the next 59 years. If you, or someone you know, has suffered a pregnancy, infant or child loss, we can help. Click below to learn more about what we can do to support you and your family.

Do You Need Support?

It is perfectly normal to ask for help. We have a network of peer support specialists who have all walked a similar path you are just starting or have been walking for a while. You may feel like no one could possibly understand. Let us help you on your journey to finding your new normal.

What Do I Do Now?

This is a question we hear a lot from newly bereaved parents. As painful as the death of a child is, the anxiety of not knowing what is going to happen can be especially devastating. Follow the link below to our Child Loss FAQ. They are written by parents who have experienced the death of their child.

Are You Ready To Connect?

Part of what we provide are opportunities via events and other activities to meet other people who are walking your same journey. Throughout the year, we provide in-person support events as well as various online support events. Our gatherings are focused on connecting with those who are still here and honoring and remembering our children who have died.
