Child & Family Grief Group Support

Our Child & Family Group Programs

Our evening grief groups typically involve 5-10 individuals meeting with 1-2 professional counsellors that specialize in helping families with children and teens adjust to the changes in their lives when someone close to them is living with a life-threatening illness or has died.

All grief groups begin with all participants, counsellors, and volunteers sharing a prepared dinner together before the session commences. Every week, our counsellors will explore different grief-related topics through discussion and interactive activities.

Why Group Support

Grief is how we respond when we experience loss. Everyone experiences grief and many people associate grief with the death of someone close to them. Grief is also a common reaction when someone in their lives is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness.

Grief is complicated. There is no one way to experience grief; members of the same family can grieve differently. Connecting with other people can reduce the sense of isolation and feelings of loneliness that often come with grief. Our counsellors can help a grieving child, teen, or family navigate the emotions and overall impact associated with grief.

Accessible to All

Counselling fees are on a sliding scale based on family income and drop-in groups are free of charge.

No one is turned away due to financial difficulties as we work hard with our community partners to ensure there are no obstacles to accessing our services. If your financial circumstances change at any time, please do not hesitate to speak with your counsellor for a fee adjustment.
