WithoutU – New Community for People in Grief


Ulf Leonhard wants to offer help and support to mourners from his own painful experience. He wants to collect and publish food for thought and ideas. With his platform “withoutu” he addresses everyone who has to cope with the loss of a loved one. He is particularly concerned about those who have lost close relatives, spouses, children, parents and best friends too early through illness, accident or other circumstances. Just as he himself witnessed only a few months ago when his wife succumbed to her cancer after a two-year battle.

He himself found help from friends who accompanied his journey intensively for days. Professional therapy also helped him to find his way back to an active life.

Uncomplicated exchange desired

He would like to make this possibility accessible to many people in an uncomplicated way with the community of “withoutu”. On the one hand, to provide information on questions and tasks that come up after a death – including very simple and practical advice and tips. On the other hand, to offer a lively platform for helpful, personal conversations, where people seeking advice and comfort can meet. And help to master the new life situation and to rediscover the joy of life.

Who should be addressed here?

All current (up to two years?) mourners who miss their loved ones as much as he does. Please also include people who have been bereaved for a longer period of time, who are willing to share their experiences, hints, tips…. and who may also be available for a conversation.
