Building Resilience in Children

Inside Out 4 Kids

Many young people are significantly impacted by grief and loss issues and do not have the emotional capacity or family support to deal with the associated trauma. Grief can result from a range of life circumstances: death of a loved one, separation or divorce, domestic violence, community crisis or removal from the family home.

Often the adults are impacted by the same issues and as a consequence, can have reduced capacity or resources to support their children.

The program is therapeutic in the sense of providing peer support and nurturing in a judgement-free environment. Students are given the opportunity to share, laugh, cry, listen and participate in activities as part of the process of equipping them to deal with grief in a confidential and safe space.

The service is offered at no charge to the schools and families.

Providing trauma, grief and loss support to children is assisted by a grant from Department of Premier and Cabinet along with funding from Motors Foundation.

Refurbishment of a safe area dedicated to providing this support program and meet community demand was funded by Tasmanian Community Fund.

Demand in schools is much higher than what City Mission is currently capable of delivering. We believe this program helps prevent long term difficulties as issues such as grief and family breakdown can erupt later in life if not addressed at the time.
