Now partnered with nearly 50 schools across the Fox Valley region, Project Hope is a collaboration between FVHH and school staff to identify student loss-related needs and to implement individual and/or group support. Sessions are held within the school day on a weekly basis – mitigating the need for busy families to coordinate travel to and from grief support sessions.
Project Hope 8-Week Groups bring trained clinicians into your school to facilitate weekly group sessions using our evidence-based grief support curriculum.
Project Hope Individual Counseling pairs students with our clinical staff to provide one-on-one support, either virtually or in person, during the school day.
Benefits of school-based support through Project Hope:
- Provides accessibility within a familiar environment
- Helps bereaved students form connections and support one another
- Normalizes the grief process
- Provides an outlet for emotional needs – assisting participating students throughout their academic day
Collaboration between FVHH’s bereavement team and school staff encourages a positive connection between emotional and academic performance.
