About the Workshop Series


In the context of loss, this program explores how we as systems leaders, managers, and team members can support ourselves and each other through policy and practice.


Our workplaces experience loss, bereavement and grief: whether it is an employee who is anticipating or healing from the death of a family member or friend, staff mourning the loss of a colleague, or a team experiencing losses in clients and community, our workplace wellness is predicated on how grief ready we are.


Fostering Grief Ready Workplaces: A Starter Kit for Mental Health and School Mental Health Leadership (2023) aims to provide essential ingredients to guide you and your organization through the basics of supporting a grieving workforce.


The Pacific Southwest MHTTC welcomes you to this unique four-part “text study series” in which we dive into the starter kit and, through dialogue, discourse and discussion, explore ways in which we can become more grief ready. We’ll spend time with the practical activities and strategies you can employ as well as reflection questions to drive the work.

  • Please aim to attend all sessions in the series; at minimum, Session 1 on March 5 is foundational for the rest of the sessions and text studies.
  • We offer this series and the guide not to provide a copy-and-paste solution but instead to offer a framework that each individual school counselor or mental health professional would use to begin developing their team’s unique grief readiness plan, recognizing that each participant holds a distinct role and sphere of influence in their school or organization.
  • This text and series are designed for adults in our workplaces navigating grief, rather than for the youth and children we serve; however, there will be a lot of transferable learnings!
