DEALING with grief is never a linear experience, no matter how many hardships you have endured so we are so grateful for the support we have received to be able to continue helping young people deal with their grief and loss.
At the start of the year, we were awarded the Co-op Foundation grant to help young people support each other through bereavement, using the arts as a vehicle to achieve togetherness. Using the funding to deliver a national online project, we will aim to help young people bereaved during the COVID-19 pandemic to use the arts to safely explore their experiences and help process the impact of bereavement. The Arts and Grief Management.
Adam Tulloch, Chief Executive at Total Insight Theatre, said:
“We are grateful for the Co-Op Foundation’s funding to help us support bereaved young people through this project, which will equip young people with tools and resources to help them process their bereavement. Using the arts to support mental health has been at the heart of our pandemic programme, and we are pleased to be able to continue to do so.”
Learning how to express emotions, thoughts and feelings that have been otherwise oppressed or thought inaccessible to say is an invaluable skill and one that will be instrumental in navigating grief throughout life.
