Offers grieving parents a safe space to come together and receive support
Groups are held the 2nd Thursday of each month • 6–7:30 p.m.
Children’s Minnesota, St. Paul campus
Thursday, January 9 topic: Common Grief Reactions and Feelings
Throughout the grief journey many parents find value in coming together with other grieving parents who can understand and appreciate the intense grief that comes when a child dies. Each session of this program will cover a pre-selected topic, while also having time for open discussion. Parents will have the option to talk about their child and their family’s story, as well as share feelings, thoughts and concerns. Parents are welcome to participate as they feel comfortable, however there is no pressure to talk — we understand the value of simply gathering together.
The Living with Grief Parent program serves grieving parents/guardians who have experienced the death of a baby or child during “childhood” (ages of preterm birth to approximately age 25).
This program is free of charge and open to any family in the greater community — families do not have to have been cared for in the Children’s Minnesota system to participate.
To meet the needs of the whole family, the Living with Grief Youth and Grandparent/Aunt/Uncle programs are held concurrently. Youth programming is available to children ages 18 months to senior year in high school. (Note: Families will need to find private childcare of babies younger than 18 months.)
Parking will be validated
