For children in our area who are grieving over the loss of a loved one, there is a new group available to help offer support. The group, BraveHearts, will meet at RiverStone Health on Tuesdays from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. beginning on Sept. 22. The group meetings will conclude on Nov. 10.

If there is a child in your life, aged 5-17, who is coping with the loss of a loved one, this group may provide the additional support they need.

During, the sessions, children will engage in activities that help them explore and express their thoughts and feelings, as well as remember and cherish special memories, through art, play and sharing, according to a RiverStone Health news release. All groups are led by RiverStone Health bereavement professionals.

There is no cost for the group, but they do require registration which must be submitted by Sept. 18th. To register, or for further information, call RiverStone Health at 651-6500.
