Grief Supports for the School Community

This video provides an overview of resources related to helping students and school community members who are grieving. It is intended for school personnel — administrators, teachers and student support staff — but it also has links to resources that parents may find useful. The resources provided in this video should assist schools and communities think about how to best guide a healthy response to, and recovery from, loss — despite the barriers in place due to COVID-19.
