The Crying Space was established in 2020 with a mission to transform cultural dialogue about crying and connect those who need to cry with the resources and spaces they need.


When you socialize the resources on this site, you help us:

  • ground cultural and personal dialogues about human tears in the contexts of health and wellbeing;

  • nurture understanding that emotional tears promote brain and nervous system performance;

  • cultivate an appreciation for the evolutionary intelligence of crying; and

  • foster support for safe crying spaces anywhere emotional material is processed and tears may be needed.
