Crime Victims & Rape Crisis Center

Teen Grief Group

Teen Grief Group is a new initiative to help youth impacted by homicide in our community.  

When teens experience the death of someone close, they often feel isolated, confused, sad, and/or angry. They may also feel disconnected from friends and family and struggle to concentrate on schoolwork. As a parent, you may have noticed difficulty communicating with your child following this traumatic loss. 

The Shelby County Crime Victims & Rape Crisis Center is offering an eight-session program for teens and parents who have experienced the death of a family member by homicide.  Parents or guardians of teens will have the option of attending a support group at our agency during their teen’s group. 

WHO: Teens aged 13-17 of all genders (optional group for parents offered)
WHEN:  Every other Tuesday afternoon, starting January - April 2020. 

WHERE: CVRCC – 1060 Madison Avenue 

All CVRCC services are free and confidential
