Teen Grief Support Group

If you are the parent or caregiver of a grieving teenager (ages 13-17), or are a teenager who is grieving the death of a loved one-- please consider applying for our online support group through The Cove Center for Grieving Children. This teen support group is run by a licensed mental health professional. The support group will cover topics related to exploring the needs of grieving teens, identifying feelings, learning coping skills and teen specific issues as it pertains to living with grief. This is a safe space for teenagers to be themselves, open up and support one another in navigating the trials and tribulations of grieving while being a teenager. Groups are closed and will take place 1x weekly over the course of 6 weeks, with an option to continue group during the next cohort.

This is a *FREE* virtual group that runs for 6 weeks, with an option to continue if needed.
Groups will meet 1x weekly via Zoom on Thursday evenings from 6:00pm-7:00pm

This process is optional. Thank you for your contribution. 

Your application will be submitted to the coordinating office and a site director will be following up with you to discuss your needs and to see if the program is an appropriate fit. Please allow 5-7 business days for this request to be processed.
