Helpful Information about Children’s Grief.

We’ve heard from many parents that they would appreciate brief, concrete, direct, and accessible information as they navigate new situations with their grief and their children’s grief. These Information and Q&A sessions are aimed to do just that.

Upcoming Sessions

The Children’s Grief Centre (CGC) is offering a series of sessions for parents and caregivers supporting grieving children and teens. Each of the four sessions will cover key topics and common concerns parents and caregivers have shared with us as they support their child or teen who is grieving.

Our hope is to provide parents and caregivers with valuable information, practical tips, and connection with others navigating grief and loss after a death.

You can register for any session that feels helpful for you.
