A bereavement counselling service has launched as part of the Barnsley Mental Health Support Team in local schools. The service is for children, young people and their families who are grieving for a family member or friend. We also support parents/carers who are bereaved by the loss of a child. Our aim is to make sure everyone who needs it gets the right help (without needing to ask), in the right setting, by the right professional person. We help by providing one-to-one support – just you and the counsellor or group. We also provide group work support (including counselling) where people who have lost someone can talk about what they’re going through with peers. We also raise awareness and understanding of bereavement and tackle why people don’t talk about bereavements.
