Event description

Description

This 10-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 10 weeks.

This program provides a supportive, and non-judgmental space to be in grief, to share and to listen; where those who’ve experienced a loss by suicide, can connect with others who’ve experienced a suicide loss.

Peer groups help reduce the isolation that many people experience in grief and provide hope that healing is possible. The support group is facilitated by trained facilitators who’ve also experienced a suicide loss, and have received support and want to help others heal. The program is overseen by a professional bereavement consultant.

The program runs every Monday, 7:00 to 9:00 p.m., from Oct 2nd to Dec 4th, 2017.

Attendance is limited to 10 participants who must meet eligibility criteria. (Please complete pre-registration form, to follow, within Eventbrite.)
