Talking with Kids About Dying & Death

Our next Workshop is 
March 31, 2023
@ 7:00 PM

Hamilton Public Library
55 York Blvd, Hamilton, ON L8N 4E4

Through the eyes of a child is a common phrase we hear when trying to understand and relate to a child’s emotions, behaviours and feelings.  However, when it comes to discussing life-altering events we are sometimes at a loss of words.  

Discussing death with children and young adults can be challenging and many tend to avoid the discussion altogether.  Death, just as birth, is a natural part of our lives. As parents and a community, it is our responsibility to ensure young people know it’s okay to discuss death and learn healthy ways to cope with grief.  

HHA is proud to offer C.A.N.D.Y Café, as a support resource in Creating Awareness and Normalizing Death for Youth. 

Currently, C.A.N.D.Y Café is a free virtual program for ages 10 - 18 to gather in a safe and accepting environment to discuss dying, death, loss and grief.  For more information or to register for the next event, please visit C.A.N.D.Y Café
