Coping After Suicide's Virtual Summer Grief Camp
Coping After Suicide's Virtual Summer Grief "Camp" is for kids ages 6-12 who've lost a parent, sibling, or other loved one to suicide. It's not a therapy group - it's a professionally facilitated, activity-based peer support group that meets on Zoom. “Camp” will be facilitated by Joan Hoff, former longtime program director for the Dougy National Center for Grieving Children and Families, who’s been facilitating grief support groups for kids for 30 years.
Joan will lead the kids in activities and discussions to help them:
- explore their thoughts and feelings around the suicide of their person
- learn ways to manage their grief reactions
- connect with other kids who are going through a similar experience
Kids can participate independently (they just ask that a trusted adult be nearby in case of technical or
emotional challenges). There are two sessions, and each session consists of four 60-minute Zoom meetings.
The two sessions will cover different topics, so kids can register for either or both:
June Session: Your Grief Journey: June 27, 28, 29, and 30 from 2-3 pm Eastern
July Session: Your Emotional Ride: July 25, 26, 27, and 28 from 2-3 pm Eastern
The registration fee is $150 per child/per session. (Not an affiliate)
Spaces will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

When Natalie's dad died suddenly at the start of her freshman year of high school, she searched, but couldn't find what she most needed: a resource written for and by other grieving teens. She decided to create one launching the website Teenage Grief Sucks in March 2020 which serves as a platform for articles ranging from what it's like to go to driving school when you're grieving to tips for how teens can support their grieving friends.
In episode #152 of The Dougy Center's podcast, "Grief Out Loud," host Jana DeCristofaro talks
with Natalie about the teenage grief experience. Listen to episode #152 at
