Partnerships with Schools
Whether through educating school professionals on the bereavement of children, providing consultation on how to help a child who lost a loved one transition back to school or helping students understand how to support their peers who are grieving, the Highmark Caring Place has always been a resource for schools in the communities it serves.
For a summary of what the Highmark Caring Place offers to schools, including the in-school peer support group program, see the Program Overview.
