Loss and grief are inevitable. Suffering alone is not.

Almost 40,000 will experience the death of a parent or a sibling who live in their home.
Through our programs, workshops and counselling services, Learning Through Loss (LTL)
reach's thousands of youth each year.
"I learned that, with grief, you have to take it one day at a time and learn how to find happiness amid of heartbreak"

Any event that causes significant and/or abrupt change
