"I learned that, with grief, you have to take it one day at a time and learn how to find happiness amid of heartbreak"

-Adrienne C. Moore

The biggest myth is grief and loss are limited to the death of a family member or friend. Grief & loss can come from many different events​

  • Parents divorcing, relationship breakup, estrangement

  • Relocating to a new home, school, or neighbourhood 

  • Illness, loss of physical or mental health 

  • Cultural identity and language loss

  • Any event that causes significant and/or abrupt change
