Dawn Lyons

Patient Leader

Dawn promotes open and honest conversations about grief from different perspectives, including how grieving individuals need better support and consideration, the impact grief has on mental health, as well as initiatives to improve mental health treatment and resources in general. She is an advocate for grieving teenagers, the age group often left behind by “support groups” and others -- something she experienced personally and has witnessed too many times since. A writer herself, she believes in the power of written expression, and founded the Teen Grief Writers, a virtual writing program and support system.
