Have you suffered the loss of a precious child?

If you have endured the death of a child, either a young child or adult child, help is available – through individual counseling as well as support group services provided, at no charge, by FVHH. A licensed clinician supervises all programs and will assist you to determine your needs.

For more information, email griefsupport@fvhh.net.

INDIVIDUAL SUPPORT

After speaking to one of our licensed clinicians, who will assess your needs, they will determine a direction of care, which could include: Individual grief services such as 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.

Email griefsupport@fvhh.net for more information.
