  • Identifying and managing feelings (enhance emotional literacy); 
  • coping with negative feelings (practicing skills such as asking for help); 
  • developing friendships, social skills and having fun with other kids with similar experiences.    

Topics include coping, communication and social skills, mental health education aimed at helping children understand their parent’s illness, peer support, building self-esteem and confidence as well as various relaxation activities
