Does everyone in the family have to participate?

Dougy Center’s mission is to provide peer support to children and teens who have a family member living with an advanced serious illness or are grieving a death, therefore a child or teen must be participating for the adults in the family to attend groups. The Pathways Coordinator can help direct you to other resources if your child(ren) choose not to participate. Adult groups at Dougy Center are optional, however most adults find the group supportive and helpful. Adults who choose not to participate must remain onsite for liability, medical, and safety reasons.
