Denise Meine-Graham, CT, TRCC

Director -

Denise Meine-Graham is a former corporate executive who, after losing her son Drey to suicide in 2012, started LOSS Community Services in Columbus, Ohio. LOSS CS exists to be an installation of hope to the bereaved by suicide. The programs she started include an on-scene 1st responder LOSS Team based on Dr. Frank Campbell’s model, an In-Touch program for staying in contact with the bereaved, both open and closed support groups and a Companioning program based off of Dr. Alan Wolfelt’s model of supporting mourners.

In 2022, Denise and her husband Robbie began Postvention Consulting LLC helping individual communities launch LOSS Teams and Postvention programs. They also work at a state level developing postvention infrastructures and networks. Leveraging her strong business acumen, Denise has created a robust framework on how to launch a LOSS Team, assisted with the nationally recognized media reporting guidelines on suicide created by AAS, testified before state legislators regarding bills and laws related to postvention, and is often asked to speak about the importance of suicide postvention as well as her personal experience as a suicide loss survivor.

Denise has received multiple awards in recognition of her accomplishments and collaborative approach. She has extensive education in suicide prevention and is a QPR (Question Persuade Refer) Instructor, a CALM (Counseling on Access to Lethal Means) trainer and a “How to Share Your Story” trainer. She is also a graduate of the Center of Loss and Life Transition with her Death and Grief Studies certification.

Denise is a member of AAS, ADEC, and the Tri-State Trauma Network. She lives in Ohio.
