There is no roadmap for grief. The holidays may be especially difficult for people who have lost a sibling with a disability. There are so many emotions that can be challenging to navigate. This meeting will be led by Shruti Tekwani, Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Coach and will allow siblings to talk about our needs, how grief can show up in different ways, and how we can get through the holidays.
This meeting is intended for people whose sibling with disabilities has died. While we appreciate that parents or providers are interested in this topic, this space is intended solely for siblings experiencing grief.
Join our “Grief and the Holidays” meeting via Zoom on Tuesday, December 15th at 6pm Eastern, 5pm Central, 4pm Mountain, and 3pm Pacific (23:00 UTC).
This is a 90 minute meeting.
