Grief is an incredibly unique and personal journey, and these materials offer insights into supporting a teen through grief, recognizing signs to watch for, and communicating effectively during this time. Remember, grief is not a linear process; it takes time, reflecting our deep love for someone.

In times of grief, we encourage students, staff, and families to reach out for support through the following options:

  • Family School Liaison Counsellors: Students can visit the school to speak with our counsellors.
  • Alberta Health Services: Call Access Mental Health at 403.943.1500 for intake and connection to a community counsellor.
  • Foothills Community Counselling: Call 403.603.3549 or email
  • Solace Grief Support Society: Call 403.601.3312 or email

Please note that the above resources are not for emergencies. In the event of an emergency, please call 9-1-1 or go to the nearest urgent care centre or emergency room. For crisis support and professional counselling, you can also contact the Distress Centre at 403.266.4357 (HELP), which provides text support as well.
