Coping with grief is a life-long struggle. For people who have lost their loved one to a violent crime, coping can be even more difficult. Trial dates, testimony, and news coverage can add to the already deep anguish people are facing. The Homicide Bereavement Program at Baystate Medical Center helps people cope with that grief. Michelle Mathieson, whose daughter Amanda Plasse was murdered in 2011, and Gina O’Niel, whose sister was murder in Hampden in in 2010, joined Baystate Family Advocacy Center’s Jen Castonguay to share more about the program.
