Fall 2019 - Loss by Suicide (9 Week Grief & Bereavement Support Program)
This 9-week peer support group program is aimed at supporting individuals through a deeper exploration of their grief experience following the death of a loved one by suicide.
It is a semi-structured group with a different grief topic discussed weekly. Participants are with the same group of people for the full 9 weeks.
This program provides a supportive, and non-judgmental space to be in grief, to share and to listen; where those who have experienced a loss by suicide, can connect with others who have experienced a suicide loss.
Peer groups help reduce the isolation that many people experience in grief and provide hope that healing is possible. This group is run by trained facilitators who experienced a suicide loss years ago, have received support and want to help others heal. The program is overseen by a professional bereavement consultant.
The program runs Mondays 7:00 to 9:00 p.m., October 21st - December 16th , 2019.
Attendance is limited. Participants must meet eligibility criteria. (Please complete pre-registration form, to follow, within Eventbrite.)
