LACONIA — A six-week program to help young people cope with a personal loss will be offered in Laconia starting Thursday at 3 p.m.
Sessions of the sessions program, being offered by New Hampshire Catholic Charities in Laconia, will be held at the St. André Bessette conference center on Gilford Avenue.
According to organizers of the program called Brighter Tomorrows, the sessions are designed to help young people cope with loss from the death of a classmate or loss of a parent through divorce or separation of any kind.
Organizers point out that the session will provide a safe opportunity for young people to share their feeling if they want to, as well as to talk about the change that is happening, understand how anger is part of the process, and work to come to a sense of understanding and forgiveness about the situation.
Sessions will be led by Su McKinnon and Leonard Campbell, Catholic Charities Parish and Community Outreach Coordinators in Concord and Laconia respectively.
