The New Normal Charity
Mental Health - GoodHabitz Documentaries

Film & Campaign Description

The film shows Ben and Jack, the founders of TNN Charity, discussing how they met, how they set up the first ever Good Grief peer support meeting, and why the work of the charity is so important to the bereaved people who use the services, and the importance of opening up around our mental health. We then meet Amber and Matt, two hugely important people within the charity. Both joined a group, and have never left. From attendees to volunteers, their work is important to the growth and ongoing support. 

The New Normal Charity

The New Normal provides space for adults who are struggling with life’s difficult moments, particularly bereavement, to discuss these issues through non-judgemental peer to peer group support. Our aim is provide free and accessible grief
support for all.

TNN was founded when two friends who had both lost their fathers, wanted to share and expand their conversations around grief with others who were experiencing loss. In May 2018, they hosted the first Good Grief peer support meeting in central London.

Since that first meeting, The New Normal has gone on to deliver over 1,000 meetings to bereaved adults from around the world, as well as training communities to deliver their own nuanced peer support. 

Connecting those who want a space to open up and better understand what they are feeling and experiencing emotionally and find a community that understands. We believe that nobody should ever feel isolated, and there is always somebody who will relate to your story. 

If there's one, there's two.
