Serenity House Hospice is excited to announce we will be hosting our first Teen 2 Teen: My Grief Story event for Elgin County. This is a one day retreat for teens, 13 to 18 years of age, who have experienced the death of a significant person in their lives. It is a peer support based program to assist teens in sharing their story, listening to others, and learning coping strategies for journeying with their grief.
We will be holding the Teen 2 Teen event on Thursday, June 13th, 2013 at the Talbot Teen Centre in St. Thomas. Registration is free however there is limited space so it will be based on a first come first serve basis. Referrals may be made by anyone, including teachers, family members, health care professionals, clergy, friends or neighbours.
Teens who attend the Teen 2 Teen retreat will learn coping strategies for their grief through facilitated teen centered activities. Strategies will be offered to help teens work through their own emotions, while providing an opportunity for peer support.
