Peer Counseling

When you are grieving the death of someone close to you, it may be difficult to reach out and ask for help. We hope that by sharing information on what to expect when you call us, you may find it easier to ask for support when you need it most.

  • Call our offices at (734) 975-0238. We do our best to make sure you reach a live person when you call. If you reach our voicemail, please leave your contact information, along with suggested times you may be available to talk. We will get back to you as soon as possible.
  • During the initial intake, we may ask for basic information about you and your situation. We can then provide more details on the kite network’s services.
  • We will ask you to fill out and submit a Personal History Form (available to download below), and return it to us, via email or USPS.
  • We will review your Personal History Form and a staff member will contact you for a telephone consultation. If needed, we may schedule a time for you to meet with our Program Director.
  • The “in-person” appointment usually lasts for one hour, at which time our Program Director will be able to determine the best support for your specific needs. We are dedicated to providing you with the best care possible.
  • Our goal is to make it as easy as possible to connect you to the services that will best support you during this difficult time.
