Mending Hearts: A place where hurting hearts are mended
To cultivate healing for grieving youth, their families, and the community through peer support group programs, training, education, and outreach.
Children and Grief
Grief is a term often used to describe the wide range of emotional and physical reactions that arise when someone has experienced the death of a loved one, or is living in anticipation of a death. Grief feelings may include shock, sadness, anger, denial, and loss of control. An array of physical reactions may also be present, such as loss of appetite, memory, sleeplessness, and lack of concentration. At the Center we believe that each person’s journey through grief is unique and therefore deserving of a distinctive approach to healing. We help children and their caregivers understand the depth of their grief, stabilize and preserve family relationships, and cope with the loss of their loved one.
Our peer support group programs bring together children, teens, and their caregivers with similar loss experiences to help normalize feelings, share experiences, and grieve the death of a loved one. Peer support group programs are open-ended and are offered at no cost to families. Each group meets twice a month in a safe, nurturing environment conducive to healing. Children who attend groups engage in therapeutic activities such as: play therapy, narrative therapy, art, poetry, journaling, music, meditation, dance/movement, and recreational activities, all of which help process their feelings of grief.
Prior to enrolling in a peer support group program, families attend an individual intake interview, at no cost to the family. To schedule an individual intake interview, please call 979-690-4673, ask for Kay.
