SAY Grief Services

SAY offers individual and group support via telehealth for youth grieving a death or other major loss. We work with schools across Sonoma County, and also offer educational presentations to parents, teachers, and caregivers about how to support young people who are grieving. These services are available at no cost to individual school sites and agencies in the community.

Our groups are age-specific and customized to the unique emotional and developmental needs of participants. With the support of professional mental health clinicians, youth are able to express their grief in their own time and in a way that is uniquely their own. Our therapeutic use of expressive arts provides the non-verbal tools for rich and honest communication about self and feelings. Participants are provided a safe space where they can share their unique stories and memories while deepening their common connections with peers.
