Thought Climber, a community interest company, was formed out of a necessity to bring people together and help generate an increase in resources readily available to those facing traumatic grief. Although suicide is the first social issue we are addressing, Thought Climber will not stop there. We are working everyday to better understand where social support is needed most for those facing traumatic grief based on the latest research provided from local authorities, social services, and university research.
We passionately believe that handwritten accounts of our personal journeys can foster a transformative difference.
Born of a personal experience with bereavement by suicide, Halani C. Foulsham discovered first hand the severely limited supply of readily available resources for navigating unknown emotional and social territory during a traumatic, life-changing event such as this.
Founded in 2016, along with the support of a small group of those with first hand experience of sudden loss, Thought Climber is an entirely not-for-profit Community Interest Company that uses creative journalling and story-sharing to help people through major life crises. Our over-arching goal is to foster a much wider, more meaningful conversation about the impact of sudden human loss and the growing need for resources to support those in need.
