School-Based Support Groups

Our school-based peer support groups are made possible in partnership with the United Way of San Antonio & Bexar County and the City of San Antonio. Their support allows us to bring peer support grief groups to campuses during the school day, allowing children to connect to peers with similar death loss experiences. It is critical for us to reach students who may not have the ability to access our services at our main location which is why we are determined to make our grief counseling services mobile and highly accessible.

In addition to our school-based peer support groups in participating school districts, Children’s Bereavement Center of South Texas is proud to be a founding partner of the San Antonio Mobile Mental Wellness Collaborative. 

Founded in 2019, six highly respected area non-profit organizations partnered under the leadership of Jewish Family Services with a common goal of bringing mental wellness resources to school districts to offer students, parents, teachers, and administrators easy access to counseling, group therapy, substance abuse recovery, grief counseling, and other wrap-around services. Starting at South San ISD in a building at Athens Elementary called the Care-Zone, the Collaborative now also serves Harlandale ISD and Edgewood ISD.  Identifying students with behavioral health concerns and connecting them to the intervention will help combat mental health stigma.  It is particularly important that these therapeutic services are offered to families at or below the poverty level, in settings integrated into their community.
