TeenSupportPlace.org is operated by National Grief Support Services Inc. and is a sub-site of GriefSupportServices.org. We are a 501c3 nonprofit charity founded to provide free services to anyone grieving any sort of loss. This may include the death of someone close but also loss of confidence, employment, physical or emotional capabilities or personal relationships. Please find out more about us by visiting GriefSupportServices.org and exploring our many services.
Teen-agers have always been as likely to suffer these losses as anyone, but today they have more options for help. The challenges of parenting include being able to serve as helper, but in parent-teen relationships this is not always a teen’s first choice. We recognize the power of the Internet to provide help on an around-the-clock basis, but we believe in the obligation to maintain confidentiality and privacy for our users of any age.
Heaven knows issues around being parents of teenagers can bring anyone to grief, and we encourage you to seek help either at GriefSupportServices.org , through any of the outside services we list as resources or in your own community. Like the teens we welcome here, parents also benefit from understanding issues more deeply and finding they have plenty of company as they deal with them.
