After canceling Sad Isn’t Bad’s recent sessions due to COVID-19 concerns, we’re looking forward to meeting again in person — with the health and safety of everyone in mind.
We are here for you as you grieve, whether you’ve lost someone to COVID-19 or other causes of death. Our host site, Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, has reopened to some indoor activities with the following safety measures in place:
- Wearing face masks will be modeled by staff and encouraged for indoor group activities.
- Reduced room capacities.
- Physical distancing guidelines.
- Hand sanitizer and masks available throughout the facility.
- HVAC fresh air exchange maximized; UVC emitters actively scrubbing circulated air.
- Cleaning regimen.
There’s been a lot of change in the past year. What hasn’t changed: Sad Isn’t Bad is a non-denominational community program open to all school-age children (K-12) and their parents or caregivers. We still offer FREE, four-week sessions in which professional counselors and social workers lead separate groups for children, adolescents and adults.
We also will serve a meal for every registered attendee, prepared and plated for you with seating with our own families.
We’re all in this together, and we will work through grief together. Sad Isn’t Bad is for the whole family to:
- help children identify and express their feelings in a healthy way;
- foster open family communications; and
- provide tools to help individuals continue on their grief journey.
