No child grieves alone at Blue Butterfly Family Grief Center
The Blue Butterfly Family Grief Center is a Tidewell Hospice program that helps grieving children and teens, ages 5-18, through peer-support groups and activities.
Families may enroll regardless of when the death occurred and regardless if there was a previous relationship with Tidewell Hospice or not. Blue Butterfly groups are facilitated by mental health professionals and trained volunteers. The facilitators use evidence-based interventions that support children and families on their grief journey.
Here is what you need to know:
