How do I get my child/teen started?
1. Please call 586-215-7100 to register and a staff member will return your call within 24 hours. At that time we will take basic information about your family and the person who died. We are happy to answer any of your questions, discuss your concerns, and help you decide if a peer support group is right for you and your family. If you need advice about grieving children or teens, a program staff person can talk with you about that, too.
2. When we talk, you will be given the starting date of the next 8 week series. If we are in the middle of a series, you are welcome to join immediately or wait for the next one to begin. Sometimes families don’t want to wait until the next session begins and choose to begin right away.
3. If you would like, prior to making a commitment to the program, you and your family are welcome to tour either of our facilities and meet members of the staff.
4. If you chose to participate in a support group at ASHLEY’s Friends, enrollment papers are distributed during the first session. You may complete them at that time, or take them home and return them to us the following week.
