Bereavement Information and Support Group
Expression of Interest for Fall, 2012
Gander and Grand Falls-Windsor
Grief is intense and difficult experience, and the road to a “new normal” often seems filled with roadblocks. The grief experience is different from any other, and many people are relieved to find out that their thoughts and feelings are actually normal. No two people will experience grief the same way, however there is a common road to readjusting to life after loss.
Central Health is offering a free, eight-session information and support group for people (age 18 and over) who are grieving the death of a loved one. Information provided will help participants navigate the difficult landscape of grief.
Understanding Grief, Helping Ourselves and Helping Others on the Grief Journey, Healthy Grieving, Spirituality and Bereavement, Mental Health and Depression, Coping with Traumatic Loss, The Impact of Loss on the family, The Grief Recovery Process.
For more information or to register for a group please contact:
