Why is this important for kids to be teens?
Loss affects every person differently, especially losses occurring during a person’s teenage years. The process of grieving becomes entwined with the numerous social and emotional challenges they are already facing on a daily basis. We designed our Teen to Teen program to specifically address how they process loss and grief.
Hospice of San Joaquin offers several Teen and children grief support programs. These programs are specialized to open communication channels allowing specialized support to those in need. Teen-to-Teen meets at the same time as Kids Korner, every Saturday morning for four consecutive weeks.
Teens who are grieving the loss of a loved one may receive support from their local school. These support programs are available in conjunction with the school counselors and are based on the needs of the student body. One on one support is available at Hospice of San Joaquin’s campus on a limited basis.
