Michael’s Place in Traverse City Adds Teen Grief Group

Michael’s Place in Traverse City opens its doors to those grieving the loss of a loved one and now they have a separate group dedicated solely to teens aged 13 and up. 

On the first and third Tuesdays of every month from 4 to 5 p.m., teens can open up or just listen, to connect with others who have experienced loss in their lives.

Michael’s Place was finding teens didn’t want to go to support groups with their families, so they now have their own time with people their own age.

“You don’t want to feel different, you don’t want to be singled out, but when you can come together with other people who have had significant losses in their lives who get you, it can really change the direction of your life,” said the program director at Michael’s Place, Melissa Fournier

Teens can expect food to be served at each group session.
