Feel The Magic
About Feel the Magic.
Feel the Magic is an Australian charity providing early intervention grief education programs for kids aged 7 to 18, who are experiencing pain and isolation due to the death of a parent, guardian, or sibling.
Our aim is to create a community where grieving kids and their families feel supported, empowered, and can begin to move forward with their lives.
1 in every 20 children aged 7-17 will experience the death of a parent . In Australia, just over 300,000 children will lose a parent before they reach the age of 18. To put this into perspective, there is most likely a child grieving the loss of a parent in every class at school. In addition to this, children also experience sibling and legal guardian loss.
Grieving children who have experienced the death of someone they love can feel isolated and alone. They require ongoing support in developing strategies to cope with and move forward with their lives following a loss.
Our evidence-informed programs have been developed by a clinical psychologist and are delivered by trained professionals. Our programs follow a structured psychoeducational framework to increase confidence and self-respect, teaching practical coping strategies to grieve in a healthy & positive way.
We aim to reduce the mental health challenges associated with childhood grief. Bereaved young people commonly suffer challenges including anxiety, depression and suicidal ideation , which contributes to the nearly one quarter of young people in Australia who experience some form of mental health challenge .
Townsville Funerals, Cremations & Crematorium are hosting a Mad Hatters Tea Party to raise awareness and much needed funding to have a counsellor and representative for our little people of Far North Queensland be located full time here.
