The virtual group will be held the third Thursday of each month. New participants are welcome.
The death of loved one is both heartbreaking and life-changing. The Children’s Minnesota Living with Grief Youth program is a safe space for children and teens who are grieving the death of a loved one—a sibling, parent, grandparent, friend, or any special person—to talk about their special person, and connect with others who have experienced a similar loss.
Each session focuses on a different grief topic. Children and teens will explore this topic through age-appropriate conversation, art, music, movement and creative interactions. Child life specialists and music therapists offer children and teens the opportunity to learn, explore and gain some understanding about a variety grief topics. Grief groups can be helpful to children and teens because it helps them see that they are not alone, that there are other kids just like them who are grieving.
