Grief Support & Counselling
Do you want to understand your grief, process your grief feelings, discuss your grief with others and/or enlarge your circle of support? We offer many Grief Support Groups to help you through your journey.
Education & Resources
Caring Hearts provides grief, trauma and ambiguous loss education, training and distributes written publications to agencies and individuals across the province. Educational webinars are also hosted on-site around grief, trauma and self-care.
Caring Hearts receives funding from the provincial and federal government to offer culturally appropriate support for families and friends of missing persons and missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls.
Toolkit - Culturally Appropriate Support for Families of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls
The goal for this Toolkit is to develop a culturally grounded program that will educate non-Indigenous agencies on various topics such as intergenerational trauma, missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls, and Indigenous traditional methods of healing. The Toolkit will take a two-eyed seeing approach of including traditional Indigenous knowledge and Western knowledge approaches to trauma informed care and healing. The majority of the topics and information in the toolkit are derived from or inspired by the knowledge of Elder’s in Treaty 4 and Treaty 6 areas in Saskatchewan.
As part of this program, Caring Hearts offers education and training on trauma, culturally appropriate care, trauma informed care, self-care and resiliency building, and ambiguous loss for agencies, groups and volunteers. Resource materials including manuals, workbooks, and webinars can also be accessed.
Hope & Support.
You are not alone. Feel hope.
Grief is a major life stressor. There is no timeline for grief and one's experience can be affected by a variety of factors, including whether or not the bereaved has a support system in place. You can access community based mental health counselling and support services and traditional healing with an Elder through Caring Hearts.
