Good Grief is grounded in the belief that:

  • Grief is a natural reaction to the loss of a loved one for children, teens, and adults.
  • Within each of us is the natural capacity to heal.
  • The duration and intensity of grief are unique to each of us.
  • Caring, acceptance, and support assist in the healing process.

We can’t take away the pain of losing a parent or sibling, but by helping young people understand and express their feelings of grief, we can help grieving kids develop awareness and specific coping skills that will serve them into adulthood.

  • Our program is always free to participants.
  • Good Grief of Northwest Ohio is the only non-profit organization in this area that focuses on children’s peer-based grief support. 
  • This type of support has been proven to reduce the negative effects of ignored or unaddressed grief in children and teens by giving them a safe place to share their experiences with others.
