Grief Support Resources

Having your child lose someone that they love or care deeply about is very painful. They may experience a number of difficult emotions, and it may feel like the pain and sadness that they are experiencing will never let up. These are normal reactions to loss. While there is no right or wrong way to grieve and work through these feelings, there are healthy ways to cope with the pain that, in time, can allow them to move forward. Below are a few resources that may be beneficial to helping them work through their loss.
