Resources to Help Students with Loss

Designed for Youth Leaders & Students from ENGAGING CONVERSATIONS

As God’s people, called to lead the generation, there may be times when we must walk with our students through a period of suffering. It can be difficult to know how to respond.


Here are some ways to offer support


Reach out. Your student needs to know s/he is not alone.

Offer a safe space to express difficult feelings.

Pray for your student and ask for wisdom to respond.


The earlier we can address mental health, the better. Let’s build strong children so that we don’t have to fix broken adults. This resource puts the right tools in the hands of the right people to start developing healthy foundations the right way.
