Grief Resources and Self-Care: 

If you are interested in more grief resources, the MHTTC Network has released a series of five fact sheets that cover various topics, such as defining grief, responses to grief across the lifespan, preventive strategies and protective resources for grief, cultural responsiveness, and evidence-based treatments for grief.

We recognize that for some people, attending sessions on grief can activate our own feelings and grief responses. Be sensitive to your own reactions throughout the Learning Institute. Take breaks, stretch, drink lots of water, etc. If you need more support, please contact:
