Bereavement Parent Mentor Training 
June 28 an 29
9:00am - 12:30pm

Participants will receive a $50 gift card for attending 

There is very little support for parents/caregivers who have had children with special health care needs or who have experienced the loss of their child.  The Family Center for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs recognizes this lack of support and in response, has created this Parent Mentoring Training.

The training is for parents in Michigan who have had a child with a special health care need, experienced the loss of their child at least 13 months ago and would like to help other parents that are looking for support in their journey with grief.

Don't You Forget About Me: Caring for Siblings

PPPC Sibling Support Toolkit

The Pennsylvania Pediatric Palliative Care Coalition and Courageous Parents Network have partnered to bring as many resources together as possible to help parents, caregivers, and medical professionals give that special attention to siblings who live and share their lives with a brother or sister with medical complexities. It takes a team to work with a child with medical complexities, and that same sense of teamwork should be extended to support siblings as they navigate the ups, downs, setbacks, and joys that make up their day to day lives.

CPCC works to improve access to and quality of palliative care for children suffering life-limiting conditions. We aim to make it easier for families to find the guidance and support they need when navigating the complexities of caring for their child.
