The COVID-19 pandemic and its consequences have caused significant loss, including lives, livelihoods and social/physical connections — and it has impacted how we grapple with death and mourning.

 

In response, the Mid-America MHTTC and MHTTC partners from across the country are developing grief, loss and bereavement resources, and training opportunities. For one, the MHTTC Network will kick off a Virtual Learning Institute on grief sensitivity and grief counseling during COVID-19. More information on this will be available in the coming weeks.

 

In July, the Network will publish a series of grief fact sheets to help mental health professionals and school mental health personnel support patients, students and families who may be experiencing grief related to the loss of a loved one.
