      Spring 2019 - Loss of Child (9 Week Grief & Bereavement Support Program)

      This 9-week peer support group program is aimed at supporting individuals through a deeper exploration of their grief experience following the death of a child. It is a semi-structured group with a different grief topic discussed weekly. Participants are with the same group of people for the full 9 weeks. This program provides a supportive and non-judgmental space to be in grief, to share and to listen; where those who’ve experienced the loss of their child, can connect with others who’ve lost a child. Peer groups help reduce the isolation that many people experience in grief and provide hope that healing is possible. This peer support group is led by trained facilitators who’ve also experienced the loss of a child, have received support and want to help others heal. The program is overseen by a professional bereavement consultant. Attendance is limited. An intake interview is required. (Please complete the pre-registration form, to follow, within Evenbrite.) The program runs every Wednesday, 7:00 to 9:00pm, Apr 3rd - May 29th 2019. Bereaved Families of Ottawa does not receive ongoing government funding and relies solely on donations to deliver its programs. The suggested donation for this program is $225 (with income tax receipt). We understand not everyone is able to make a suggested $225 donation. If you can donate in installments, or can make a partial donation, or don't have the ability to make a donation, please contact our office at 613.567.4278 or office@bfo-ottawa.org before continuing with the pre-registration within Eventbrite. We have a limited number of spaces available.
