“Sometimes I feel like I’m different at school, but here I know that everyone understands” – Past Participant
Seasons Centre for Grieving Children’s programs are based on a peer support model. Participants in Seasons Centre’s peer support groups are arranged by age and similar circumstances around a death. This model provides participants an opportunity to share their thoughts and feelings with peers who are living with a similar experience. For a grieving child or teen, one of their greatest frustrations is the lack of understanding or supportive people outside their family.
The summer and school programs are also based on a peer support model.
For an initial consultation for any of our services, please call the Program Department at 705.721.5437. Professional staff will gather information regarding the circumstances for the call and will discuss the most appropriate service for you.
If the inquiry is for our group programs at Seasons, an intake will be scheduled with the child and caregiver at the Centre. They will tour our facilities and learn more about our services. Individuals will be invited into the most suitable group based upon the age of the participant and nature of the death or terminal illness.
