Make time to talk about grief and loss

3 April 2019

Head Talk is a free community event for young people and their families to come together and share experiences of grief and loss, hosted by Mornington Peninsula Shire in partnership with Headspace Frankston.

Young people aged 10-25 and their families are encouraged to attend to hear from amazing guest speakers; enjoy live music and free food; take part in some interactive activities (maybe win a prize) and receive information and support.

Addressing grief and loss is an individual and personal process and Head Talk will provide you with information needed to care for yourself and others.

Grief and loss means something different to everyone and could follow the death of loved one, separation of parents, an animal passing away, moving schools or losing friendships. Knowing how to support yourself and others going through this can make all the difference.

Local support groups and members of the Shire’s Youth Services team will be available to provide support and referrals to local health services for anyone who has experienced grief or loss helping you heal and understand the process.

Come along to hear young people talk about their personal experiences.

Head Talk is supported by local agencies and support groups including Mornington Peninsula Shire Youth Services, Headspace Frankston, Chasing Change, It’s Okay to Not Be Ok and Sports Chaplaincy Australia; who can provide a range of information and advice to families and young people.

For more information or to book, contact Breanna Alderman-Bates on 5950 1099.
