Victoria Hospice Bereavement Services is offering a seven-week support group for adults who are grieving a loved one who has died by suicide. Facilitated by a bereavement counsellor, the group incorporates grief education, sharing and support, therapeutic activities, and creative exploration.
The group aims to enhance one’s sense of community and belonging, explore unique features of grief in response to suicide death, and support the healing and adaption process of grief.
When: Oct. 19 to Nov. 30, 2022, Wednesdays 4:30 to 6:30pm
Where: The series will be held at the Community Support Centre on Chatterton Way or online on the Zoom video platform.
Group size: Limited number of participants to enhance comfort. A commitment to attend all sessions enhances the value of the group experience.
Fee: Registration fee is $70. Please speak to us if the fee is a barrier to your participation. No one will be turned away for lack of funds; bursaries are available.
** A pre-group interview with a counsellor is required to discuss your needs, answer any questions you may have, and determine whether the group is a good fit for you at this time.
