Care Dimensions: Grief Support Resources:
"Students who are coping with trauma and loss bear a heavy burden and may have difficulty functioning socially, emotionally and on academic work. Grief has no timetable. It may come in waves during the turbulent months of a loved one’s illness and then intensify after he or she has passed away. Each experience is unique and deeply personal. Emotions run the gamut from sadness, anxiety and guilt to anger, helplessness and depression. Whatever the reaction, Care Dimensions will be by your side, offering support and comfort – helping you cope and move forward."

We provide support and training locally, nationally, and internationally to individuals and organizations seeking to assist children in grief."
Good Grief: Grief Resources:
"Grief is a normal and natural reaction to death. Love and grief are inseparable – they are yin and yang – so when we lose those we love we experience grief. It is a normal response and it has been a part of the human condition since the beginning of time. You can see grief in every culture. Some cultures embrace this experience more directly than others. Some, unfortunately, sweep this experience under the rug or pathologize it as an abnormality."
