INDIVIDUAL SUPPORT

Individual grief services include meeting with a clinician for short-term, individual grief counseling, or with an FVHH volunteer who is extensively trained in all aspects of grief support.

The work with a FVHH volunteer is focused on facilitating a grief companioning relationship for up for 12 months, which provides a listening and supportive ear while identifying additional resources as needed during this difficult time. Meeting with a volunteer is recommended for those who have made progress in their grief process already but need ongoing supportive conversations.

GROUP PROGRAMS

This group supports parents grieving the loss of a child who has passed away. This group helps parents to cope with their loss and provides a safe space in a group environment. Cherished Children is organized to focus on either young child loss or adult child loss to better meet your specific needs.

Short-term individual counseling is also available, at no charge, during the interim between Cherished Children Support groups.

Cherished Children is provided free of charge to participants; however, advance registration is required. For more information, contact griefsupport@fvhh.net.
