“Living with Grief” Provincial 8-Week Bereavement Support Group
This group is for adults (ages 18+) who are experiencing grief due to death. This 8 week group provides bereaved individuals with an opportunity to learn about grief, loss, and bereavement so that they can understand what healthy grief looks like in everyday life. Participants will gain practical coping skills to deal with common and ongoing grief reactions, like anxiety, sleeplessness, and unhealthy negative thinking patterns. Participants will be invited to share their story in a supportive and confidential environment.

The weekly topics are as follows:

Week 1 – Understanding Grief
Week 2 – Experiencing Grief
Week 3 – Types of Grief
Week 4 – Healthy Grieving
Week 5 – Taking Care of Yourself
Week 6 – Grief and the Family
Week 7 – Grief and Your Mental Health
Week 8 – Your Journey of Healing

The Virtual Bereavement Support Group will be offered on Thursdays starting October 3, 2024 and will be held at 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm island time (1:30 pm – 3:00 pm Labrador). Please email griefandbereavement@easternhealth.ca to get more information.
