Lynn Ovaska-LAPS Healthy Schools Initiative
My community has had numerous traumatic deaths recently and we do not have many grief services available for our teens. I plan to offer closed bereavement sessions after school to assist individual grieving students in intimate, confidential group. I plan to also offer open bereavement sessions to assist grieving all students and staff as a diverse group with more flexibility. I will also coordinate with parents, teachers, school counselors, professional counselors to fully support grieving teens. I have been approached to take over adult grief groups in my community since the leader recently retired.
