Kids Grieve TooFree
About this course
An 8- week professionally-facilitated virtual peer support group for children ages 6-12 years who are remembering someone who has died of cancer. This group will provide children with an opportunity to connect with peers, share experiences around cancer and death and how it has affected them and their families. By using a variety of therapeutic play activities, which are mailed to their home, the children will engage virtually to receive support and education, ask questions, express difficult feelings and share common experiences with other children who have experienced a similar loss.

How to prepare
All virtual support groups require intake and a Zoom meeting with a GCGT program staff prior to your first attendance.
Our support groups are being offered virtually at this time. The following is required to participate:
- Computer, phone or tablet with a camera
- Internet connection
- A private room without distraction
Gilda’s Club Greater Toronto offers 8-week support groups three times a year. Our support groups are run by mental health professionals who have a strong understanding of the unique needs of individuals who have been impacted by cancer.
Support groups are not operated on a drop-in basis. We encourage commitment to the entire 8-week. A commitment to the group helps to build community and allows for topics and conversations to be built on week by week.
