Death of a Child Grief Mentor Program

Grief Mentors are here to help

Texas Children’s Hospital fully supports the parent-led initiative that provides our families with the unique understanding, encouragement, and support that only another parent who has walked a similar path can provide.


What is a Grief Mentor?

The Grief Mentor will provide support to grieving parents by establishing a relationship through on-going communication. Grief Mentors are formally trained parent partners who understand the impact of the loss of a child from the parent perspective. If you would like to be matched with a Grief Mentor, please fill out the forms linked above.
