The In-Between: Supporting Grieving Young Adults

Grief is an isolating experience for anyone, but it can be particularly challenging for young adults, many of whom are the first people in their peer group to experience a loss. This population falls in the “in-between” of most grief support services; they are too old for most children’s grief organizations yet may struggle with a sense of belonging in other grief support spaces — most of which cater to older adults. In this webinar, experts will share strategies for how to engage and support the young adult population.
