GLOUCESTER TOWNSHIP NJ --Today, August 30, National Grief Awareness Day recognizes the time it takes to heal from loss doesn’t have a prescribed course and is a reminder closure comes in many forms. When a loved one dies, the void they leave affects everyone differently.
If you are in high school and are struggling with grief from a death of someone close to you, join the Teen Support Group to share and learn ways to manage those feelings. The Teen Grief Support Group will hold its first meeting on September 16 at 7:30. The group will meet every Monday night for 6 weeks. Registration is required by texting 609.617.7204 with your name, age and school.
This support group is led by a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and sponsored by the GTPD. It is held at the Gloucester Township Police Family Resource Center, 1324 Little Gloucester Rd, Blackwood. For more information use the number above.
Michelle Selfridge, License Clinical Social worker expresses, “When a teen experiences profound loss their lives becomes even more complex than it was. Developmental issues, coupled with the emotional turmoil of grief, create unexpected challenges resulting in behavior often misunderstood by them and the people closest to them. The Teen Grief Group will explore levels of grief and provide insight and tools for teens suffering loss at this crucial time in their lives. With hope and support, working through grief can result in life-enhancing outcomes.”
