Registration has begun for the Alive Teen Retreat, a weekend of support and fun for grieving high school students. The retreat will be held Sept. 21 to 23, and registration will continue until Sept. 12. To register, call 615-907-1677.
There is a cost of $50, and financial assistance is available based on need.
Teens will come together at a youth camp in Rutherford County, where they'll participate in a variety of indoor and outdoor group activities. The retreat will help grieving high school students make sense of what they're going through; identify healthy ways to cope; and honor loved ones they've lost.
It also involves plenty of fun.
The Alive Teen Retreat is facilitated by Alive Grief Support Services, the bereavement support program of Middle Tennessee's Alive Hospice. Any high school student who has lost a loved one is encouraged to take part.
In addition to the Alive Teen Retreat, Alive Grief Support Services offers individual counseling and grief support groups for adults, teens and children throughout the year. For more information about bereavement support, call 615-963-4732.
