Most young people will encounter grief and loss for the first time before they turn 18. Learning Through Loss is a free training for professionals or volunteers working with young people. The training provides participants with the tools they need to support young people to safely navigate grief and loss. The learnings from the training have the potential to prevent the development of mental illness in those affected by grief and loss.

What people are saying


{I am very happy to see this service. I have previously found a huge lack of support for young people experiencing grief.
{The course was really valuable and well delivered. We were given clear and concise strategies on how to support students dealing with loss, and that loss can come in many forms. It also gave clear information on how to access further support and the correct pathways to be taken in a school environment when supporting students.
{Great presentation - filled gaps I didn't know were there!
{The resources provided were clear and inviting, so readily accepted by students in a teaching unit on mental health. An excellent program that helps in many areas of life.
{Fantastic from a teacher's perspective and from someone who lost a parent during school years.
{I am very grateful for this amazing training as a teacher, as a parent, and as a friend. I wish more people would access the training. It also helped me understand some of the reactions I had in the past such as unexpected anger. Please continue to do what you are doing.
