Launching November 15, 2023!
Child & Youth Program
Our dream for the future of our community
The Child and Youth program includes various elements designed to meet various needs of children and youth from 4 to 19 years old at no cost. Every child and family is unique and requires diverse options to help them through their healing journey. This program will incorporate equity, diversity, and inclusion, encircling each child and youth with compassionate care in a trusting, neutral, safe environment.
All CRHS services are available at no cost to our community
Statistics show that suicidal ideation can increase by 50% in children and adolescents who have lost a loved one by sudden death. The program aims to prevent children and youth from turning to destructive behaviours and activities such as drugs and crime to manage their pain, depression, anxiety and lost sense of meaning or purpose often associated with traumatic grief experiences. Instead, this program will result in healthy outcomes by equipping them, their families and their support systems with tools, peer support and professional support to guide them through their healing journey.
There are no other children & youth grief support programs in Campbell River
