Support & Share Night Program

Join us for an evening of grief education and bereavement support at our upcoming Support and Share Night on Tues, March 5, 2019.

Our March 5, 2019 speaker is Ian Henderson.

Ian is a grief educator and facilitator who has helped numerous people through their grieving journey.

His presentations are suitable for both the new and ‘experienced griever.’ Grief is a natural reaction to losing someone we love. Ian gives us a better understanding of grief and its natural process.

For 40 years, this monthly program has been supporting individuals and families on their journey of grief.  The night begins with an educational talk, followed by an opportunity to connect with others who are grieving a similar loss to yours in one of our 8 support groups.  Groups are led by trained facilitators who have grieved and experienced a loss similar to yours.  You are not alone.

The 8 bereavement groups are:

  • for Youth (High School age)    **NEW for 2019***
  • loss of Spouse
  • loss of Child
  • loss of Perinatal (miscarriage, still birth, infant under 1 year)
  • loss of Parent/Other
  • loss of Sibling/Friend/Other
  • by Suicide
  • by MAID (Medical Assistance in Dying)

When
