SIBSPlace - Survivorship in Brothers and Sisters

Survivorship in Brothers and Sisters

SIBSPlace® is a free prevention and support program for children ages 5 to 17, sponsored by South Nassau Communities Hospital. Since October 2000, this community-based program has provided children guided therapeutic activities in which unexpressed feelings and confusing experiences surrounding a family medical illness can be addressed.

A professional behavioral health staff, supported by trained volunteers, offers children opportunities to engage in therapeutic art, verbal activities and group discussion to improve self-awareness, expression and coping skills.

Individualized homework help throughout the school year and a free six-week camp during the summer for registered participants and parent support group are also provided. Additionally, bereavement services for children who have lost a sibling or parent is offered.

SIBSPlace helps to restore a child’s sense of balance that is often lost when a family member becomes seriously ill. Most importantly, it provides a safe place where children can have feelings validated and experiences normalized during a traumatic time in their lives.

For more information about SIBSPlace, call (516) 374-3000 or email sibsplace@snch.org.
