Children's Grief Resources

 

Children often grieve differently from adults. When a loved one dies, it is often a child's first experience with death. CaringMatters Children's Bereavement Services help children explore their feelings, develop healthy coping  strategies, and find comfort and safety in learning that they are not alone. 

 

Our grief support services for children are facilitated by trained staff and volunteers in group environments where they can meet peers who have suffered similar losses. 

 

 

CaringMatters has developed useful video and printed

resources on children's grief in several different languages.
