“Cry when you must; laugh when you can.”
This unique 8 week group support program allows teens to connect with peers also impacted by grief. The goal of the program is to introduce life skills and coping strategies to enhance physical, emotional, mental,
social and spiritual well being.
Concepts from Laughter Yoga combine with mind-body exercises designed to reduce anxiety, boost self-esteem and expand healthy communication.
The one hour closed group sessions invite teens to decrease stress and increase joy through laughter exercises, breathe techniques, acupressure tapping, visualization exercises and amusing stretching poses.
The group is facilitated by a Grief Support Services staff member and is run throughout the year when there is participant interest. There is no cost to participants in the program.
“The opportunity to connect and grow with other grieving teens can be an important part of the journey.”
Laughter permits you to approach grief, take breaks from the hard work of grief and manage your loss effectively.
It is not an indication you loved less. You can give yourself permission to honor the life of your special person by celebrating the life you were given.
