Charlene Reaveley Children’s Charity was created to offer support and assistance to grieving children and their families. What was needed in Dan’s experience was counselling without financial burden, access to books and resources within the community and a connection to families who were also experiencing a loss in their lives.
BEREAVEMENT SUPPORTS FOR SUICIDE LOSS
Crisis Centre BC - Suicide Loss
Child & Youth Bereavement - Langley Hospice
Grief is a natural reaction to loss. It is the normal process that occurs after a person has experienced the death of someone significant in their life. Children and teens express loss differently from adults, and may have many different responses. Children and teens may be affected academically, behaviourally, emotionally, socially and physically. The type of support that children and teens receive during their bereavement can impact their health and well-being, social relationships and future success in school.

In 2020, we expanded Upopolis to include an “island”, a place where youth navigating life challenges can connect. Upopolis Island offers private groups for youth who are navigating grief, siblings of youth who are living with a medical condition and soon youth of parents living with a critical or chronic illness. Youth will have access to peer support, resources, activities shared by our child life team and more.
