Has your child experienced a death of someone close?
Join Mourning Hope Grief Center for our next 10 Week Family Grief Support Group which begins:
Tuesday Nights, October 3, 6:30-8pm
This support  group is open to new families, but also available for anyone who has already attended a 10-week session. Families are invited to participate in Mourning Hope’s programs following the death of someone significant in their lives – a sibling, parent, grandparent or friend. Activities are designed to help youth express themselves through art, games, and dramatic play, while the adult caregivers learn strategies to support their bereaved children and process their own grief.
Whether the death was sudden or anticipated, recent or many years ago, Mourning Hope welcomes you to join our support group series which is offered at no-cost to participants. These groups enable both youth and their caregivers to develop healthy coping skills and work through the complex emotions associated with the death of someone close to them. Most importantly, children and teens will recognize that they are not alone in their grief.
Register online for either upcoming session.
