Treasure Health Services

Grief Support

We are there when you need us. When you experience a loss, Treasure Health Grief Support counselors help adults, children and families in each of the communities we serve. Our counselors offer willing ears, an open heart and years of experience to help you find the tools you need to cope with grief and find hope and healing. We offer group, individual and family counseling and support.

Guidance comforts amid a loss

Some people benefit from group counseling while others find comfort from one-on-one counseling.

 

Treasure Health Grief Support offers both.

 

The wide-ranging grief support program at Treasure Health encompasses individual counseling, youth counseling, group counseling, and family counseling. When tragedy strikes a school setting or workplace, our counselors are there, offering direction, guidance and support to create a place of calm amidst the turmoil.

Grief counseling is available to all who grieve in Martin and St. Lucie counties, thanks to generous grants and community contributions. Donations are accepted, but no one is turned away from our places of hope and healing because of inability to pay.

Please contact us at 772-403-4530 or email us at griefinfo@treasurehealth.org, ask about our programs, and let our counselors assist you and your family.  If you prefer, you may use our Contact Us form so that our compassionate staff can answer your questions about our care and services.

Youth and Family Programs

We are aware of the special needs of children who have experienced loss, and we have a full continuum of support programs to help them heal. Each spring we offer Camp Good Grief for children who are in the process of coping with grief. It’s a time for pure kid fun and a comforting sense that no one is alone.

The holiday season can be an extremely difficult time for both children and families. Holiday Camp is dedicated to giving children and families the opportunity to heal during the season.

Family Camp is a program designed for families to learn coping skills together so they can begin to heal as a family.

Please contact us at 772-403-4530 or email Grief Support to ask about our children and family programs so our certified grief counselors can assist you and your family.

A Camp for Healing and Fun

Camp Good Grief is an overnight, weekend camp for grieving children ages 8 to 18. Camp activities are specially designed to help campers express their grief and develop bonds with others who have experienced similar losses. Our camp offers specialty activities such as arts and crafts and outdoor fun.

This year, 25 local children and teens enjoyed a luau-themed camp experience March 31 to April 2 at Life for Youth Camp in Vero Beach.   Many thanks to the generosity of donors in our community for making the weekend of hope and healing possible!

A Message from Our CEO

Susan de Cuba

President and Chief Executive Officer

Few creatures inspire as much wonder as the hummingbird. Tiny, yet strong enough to migrate 500 miles across the Gulf of Mexico, this brilliant bird is the ultimate symbol of resilience. So it’s only fitting that we have incorporated a hummingbird into our new look and logo to symbolize our organization’s life-affirming mission.

Under the Treasure Coast Hospice name, we have grown our services beyond our cornerstone hospice program to include palliative care, grief support counseling and specialized pediatric care. To better reflect our expanded scope of community services, we have changed the name of our parent organization to Treasure Health, while our flagship hospice program will continue to be called Treasure Coast Hospice.

Hospice will always be the heart of our mission. The same outstanding care the community has known since 1982 will continue. The experience we’ve gained during the past 35 years translates well to other services that improve quality of life. Our full spectrum of support includes Treasure Coast Hospice, Treasure Health Palliative Care, Treasure Health Pediatric Care and Treasure Health Grief Support.

With all of our services, our goal is to empower patients and families with the knowledge and support they need to make every moment count.  Guiding our efforts is a caring community of health professionals, volunteers and donors. Like me, they believe that in all stages of illness, everyone deserves to experience the best possible quality of life.

With our comprehensive, compassionate approach to palliative care, hospice services and grief support, we are building communities that allow people to drive their own destinies for the highest quality of life in every health circumstance.

We are excited to embrace a fresh brand that helps us promote our life-affirming philosophy and look forward to having you join us as a trusted partner in supporting our community’s healthcare journey.
