Hello APS families. We will start our first 5-week bereavement group with Rick’s Place on Nov 16th. This first group will be for students grade 4th through 6th and their caregivers who experienced a loss of a loved one. Groups will run from 6 to 6:45 and will be remote. This is a group for families (child and caregiver) to heal together. Through this facilitated support group, Rick’s Place offers grieving young people and their families a place to remember their loved ones and to avoid the sense of isolation that such a loss can produce. Because grief is a normal response to any loss, Rick’s Place offers caring and compassionate support to grieving young people. Please email our Student Referral Coordinator, Pam Gentile at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up or to learn more. Slots are filling up fast!
