Bridges’ School-Based Grief Support Program

Bridges is pleased to offer a children’s grief support program:

• An evidence-informed, age-adjusted curriculum
• Facilitated in small groups by trained, experienced leaders
• The program is a 12 week interactive group with games, other activities, and discussion aimed at helping children and teens grieve and grow after the death of a loved one
• Affirms that feelings of loss and grief are normal and decreases feelings of isolation
• Focuses on building confidence and self-esteem, improving communication with families and peers, and prevention of destructive behaviors such as gang involvement and substance abuse
• Goal of improved school attendance and academic performance

Bridges is seeking organizations that regularly work with children
to host Bridges’ Grief Support Program groups. The program works well in schools,
after-school programs, faith communities, etc.
