Our School Program offers time-limited groups, on-site, during the school day, at area elementary, middle and high schools.

We address different themes such as, Feelings, Changes & Rebuilding, Special Days and Memories using expressive arts to help students explore the feelings they have after a death.

Groups are scheduled throughout the year, at a time agreed upon by Fernside and the school. Fernside has limited capacity to run school-based groups and they’re scheduled on a first come, first-served basis. Like all of Fernside’s services, our school groups are offered at no cost to the school or to the students.

We're Here to Help:
