We’re glad you’ve found this space. YouthGrief.ca has been developed — from content to art to design — by grieving youth, for grieving youth. It shares wisdom, experiences and advice from more than 30 young people who’ve been there, and know what it’s like to grieve when someone you care about has died.
Sometimes it may feel like people around you can’t relate or understand your grief or what you’re going through. That’s what Youthgrief.ca is here for – so you can hear from people who “get it.”
If you are a parent, educator or other interested adult, or other interested adult, this site will help you understand young people’s unique experiences of grief, and give you ideas about how to support them. We have other spaces for you, too: kidsgrief.ca and mygrief.ca
