Grief Support Groups 

Is your daily function slowly improving since your loss? 
Do you want to better understand your grief, process your grief feelings, discuss your grief with others and/or enlarge your circle of support?

 

REGISTRATION OPEN:

Online Conversations about Grief and Loss Peer Support Group - Thursdays September 9 - 30, 2021 from 7 - 8 pm

A facilitated four-week peer support group with Greg. Sometimes it's just nice to have someone to talk with to share how you are feeling so you don't have to face grief alone.

Anticipatory Loss - Anticipatory grief can be a long, slow experience. Watching a loved one decline and slowly slip away from us is painful. There are so many emotions and difficult thoughts that we will go through. We don't have to experience this alone.

 

Join Renee Fesser, a Registered Social Worker at Joshua Tree Learning Centre for an 6-week journey exploring and learning more about this unique grief and how we can learn to connect, support and heal. 

 

When: Virtual and in-person 

Starting Saturday October 16th from 1-3 pm for 6 weeks

Where: Caring Hearts - 2310 Smith St. Regina, Sk

Please register by calling Joshua Tree Learning Centre at (306) 546-5674 or by filling out the registration form below.

(Masking and social distance in place for in-person group*)

Sunday Seniors Craft and Chat - Grief is difficult alone. Are you a senior that has recently experienced a loss of a loved one? Grief and loss are part of life and the life stages. We mourn many things as we age including adjustment to physical change and loss. Losing a spouse and family member can and will be a life altering event.

Connection helps: Join Renee Fesser registered Social Worker at Joshua Tree Learning Centre, for support and activity connecting with others. 

When: Begins Sunday October 17th from 1-2 pm. This program will continue as a drop in program until the end of March.
