Abangane Grief Support for Teen Girls

Almost one-fifth of children and adolescents in South Africa have lost a parent; many have experienced multiple losses. Bereaved children and adolescents are at increased risk for psychological health problems including maladaptive grief and depression. Khululeka has developed an evidence based support group curriculum specifically for bereaved teen girls called the Abangane programme, freely available here.
