TeleHealth News


June 16, 2016




     Our world is becoming evermore dangerous and challenging. Conflicts of all kind are affecting us all in many ways. This is hardest on our children and young members of our society. Often they feel totally confused and have no idea how to deal with their loss or calamity. Their family members, themselves maybe in too much pain to help the children. If not properly addressed, the psychological affect could become a lifelong painful scar. Thus NM Telehealth Alliance would like to inform our members of this important NM program that helps these young people;
     "Since 2001, the Children’s Grief Center of New Mexico has been providing free support groups for young people ages 5-25 who’ve had a loved one die. To answer that need, CGC provides a free 3-day, 2-night camp, called Camp Corazon, for kids ages 7-senior in high school who are grieving the death of someone important to them.
     Camp Corazon offers traditional camp activities such as a challenge course, bonfire, songs and games. But it also provides a unique opportunity for kids who have lost a loved one to share feelings and memories with other kids who’ve been through something similar. Camp Corazon provides grieving children with age-appropriate coping skills that will help them manage grief in their day-to-day lives, even after they leave."

     We need volunteers to help at camp – as Big Buddies (working and camping side by side with each kid), Activity Leaders and in logistical support roles. Most volunteers return for multiple years because it’s FUN! Grief Center staff members are available to make presentations or talk further on the phone – please contact us at 505-323-0478 or
