Why Youth Loss & Grief Education Matters...


CANADIAN STUDY REVEALS THAT 1 IN 14 CHILDREN WILL EXPERIENCE THE DEATH OF A PARENT OR SIBLING BY THE TIME THEY TURN 18.

According to a study by the Canadian Alliance for Grieving Children and Youth...

  • More than 203,000 of Canada’s 7.5 million children under 18 experience the death of someone in their extended family each year.

  • Nearly 40,000 will experience the death of a parent or sibling who lives with them.

  • The death of a parent or sibling has been found to be one of the most stressful life events that a child or youth can experience.”

Grief is an inevitable part of life, yet many youth say nobody has ever talked to them about it. When they feel a loss they struggle to discuss it with others for fear of discomfort.

LTL's Good Grief Workshops 60-90 minute workshops educate students about loss and grief, the impact it can have on theirs' and their friends’ lives, as well as strategies for coping.

Drop us a line and we’d be happy to discuss all of the options available for your school – students, parents, teachers and counsellors.
