Peer support group programs bring together youth and families with similar death loss experiences to help normalize feelings, share experiences, and grieve the death of a parent, sibling or close family member. Peer support programs are open-ended and are offered at no cost to families. There are five groups: elementary, middle school, high school, college/young adult, and their parents.
