When someone you love dies, everything in your world changes. Many people believe that they are going crazy, they feel “out of control”. These are normal responses to grief. The most beneficial thing that we can do for ourselves is to allow for the experience of our grief, express the emotions that we are experiencing and practice good self care.
Members of a support group typically share their personal experiences and offer one another emotional comfort and moral support. They may also offer practical advice and tips to help you cope with your situation.
If you are interested in attending either individual grief support or a grief support group, please contact us by phone at 604-564-6222 or email at [email protected]
