Grief Resources

Grief can be expressed in many different ways. When children and teenagers grieve, you can expect to see an array of emotions and behaviors. One of the most important actions you can take is responding to your child’s feelings and providing reassurance as he or she brings up fears and concerns.


If your child needs to speak with someone, please call your child's school and ask to speak with a school adviser or social worker. Below are some helpful websites where you can find more information to help your child.
