Bereavement and loss

When someone close to us passes away, it can be a very difficult time for children and adults. The mentors can help to support with bereavement and grief.

Loss can be devastating for children. Parents who have split, a pet who has left, as well as someone's death can be one of the most stressful times for all.

Having someone to talk to at these difficult times, can help tremendously. Being able to cry and express sadness and grief, with a trusted person are all part of the healing process. Sometimes, where appropriate, children may make a memory box for a loved one. This is one way of remembering a loved one in a positive way.
