SAY Grief Services

SAY Grief Services offers peer support groups for children and adults healing after a death or the trauma of living with a family member with a life-altering illness.

Our groups are age-specific and customized to the unique emotional and developmental needs of each participant. With the support of professional mental health facilitators and trained program volunteers, youth ages 5 to 19 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 essential tools for rich, honest communication and participants are encouraged to share their unique stories and memories while deepening their common connections with peers.

See our calendar for meeting times.
