Although Father's Day is often portrayed as a happy day full of gratitude, we know that it can also bring feelings of sadness and grief for many of us. For those who find Father's Day emotionally difficult, here is a list of coping tips to help support you in your grief. Remember that it's okay to grieve for many reasons on this day – Those of us who are children that have lost fathers and fathers who have lost children. Those of us who have lost fathers or children due to incarceration, foster care, or estrangement. Those of us who cannot be with our fathers or children due to living far away or outside of our region.We urge you to spend the day in a way that feels right to you.If you need further support, please reach out to us at or 902-893-3265 ...
