Bereavement Peer Support Group - Mixed Loss (in person)

Tuesday, September 27, 2022 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Sometimes we need support in expressing our mixed emotions and learning how to make peace with our new lives without our loved ones. Comfort from family and friends is important during this time, yet not always possible.

VON's Bereavement Peer Support Group – Mixed loss - is being offered in person Tuesday, September 27th - November 15th, 2022 from 6:00-7:30 PM, to individuals (18+) from the SSM area who have experienced the death of a significant person in their lives.
Open for members of SSM and area (maximum eight)
It is a ‘closed group’ - so please be able to commit for the eight weeks

Every Tuesday Evening - 6:00 to 7:30PM

Required book ‘Understanding Your Grief’ by Dr. Alan Wolfelt
Contact Julia @ julia.lewis@von.ca or call 705-206-4537 for more information
The program is based on a peer support model and are facilitated by Program Coordinator, and trained volunteers who have experienced a loss themselves. The program is designed to support bereaved individuals in a group setting by creating a safe space where they can share their stories, explore questions and feelings, and learn healthy coping strategies. All of this takes place in an environment where grief is normalized and individual experiences are validated.
