Youth Bereavement Program

Grief and bereavement support for teenagers/adolescents ages 13-19 who have had a parent, primary caregiver, sibling or someone significant in their life die. 

This is an 8-week program, led by experienced facilitators, that consists of age-appropriate discussions and activities related to youth experiences of death in their family. In this group setting, youth will also be able to connect and receive support from other group members. The program will help youth identify feelings and coping strategies to build resilience within this new reality.
