Kids’ grief counselling offered at IWK

The IWK Health Centre in Halifax is offering help to children and teenagers who have lost a loved one.

Support groups for grief and bereavement will be held in the coming months for teenagers 13 to 18 and children six to 12.

Participants will be given the opportunity to express grief through group exercises and expressive arts, led by trained facilitators and volunteers who have been screened by the IWK.

The sessions for teenagers will take place on Feb. 26 and 27.

The children’s support group will meet Wednesdays at 4:30 p.m. from March 24 to May 5.

Pre-registration is required. Call bereavement co-ordinator Nick Zwaagstra at 470-8942.
