Teenagers 14 to 18 are in groups together. The teen group gets a chance to talk to each other and also do various activities for 75 minutes every other week.
All groups are facilitated by trained volunteers who are in turn coordinated by the Executive Director of The Solace Tree.
The Solace Tree refers children and teens to therapists and counselors if needed. We have a list of professional individuals who specialize in grief and loss.
How to get my child or teen started in a grief group.
- A parent, guardian, or professional contacts us and a staff member will take basic information down about the family member who died.
- After we place your child or teen in a group we will then call you and tell you the place and time of the group meeting.
- Participants can be in the program as long as they find it helpful.
- Fill out a permission form.
