When tragedy strikes, sometimes it feels like we are the only ones experiencing it. However, the reality is that grief will strike everyone sooner or later. It can be very helpful to hear how other people, experts in the field, and the community-at-large experience their grief and how they have found hope and healing. Here, we share some of their stories. 

Healing, Together.

Celebrating life in the face of loss.

At the Centre for Grief and Healing, we know that living with grief can be incredibly difficult. But we also believe that amidst the pain and challenges, there can be moments of hope, resilience, and even joy. That's why we're always on the lookout for good news stories and testimonials from people who have found ways to cope with their grief and find meaning in their lives again.


By sharing stories of hope, resilience, and healing, we hope to create a sense of community and connection for those who are going through similar experiences.

If you're someone who has experienced loss and found ways to thrive despite it, we'd love to hear from you. Maybe you've found solace in a particular hobby or activity, connected with others who share your experiences, or discovered a new sense of purpose in helping others. Whatever it is, we want to celebrate your resilience and share your story with others who may be going through similar experiences.

Sharing your story can not only inspire others, but it can also be a powerful way to honor your loved one and the impact they had on your life. We're committed to creating a brave, supportive space for you to share your experiences, and we're here to listen and learn from you.

If you're interested in sharing your story or have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us. We're excited to hear from you and celebrate the resilience and strength of our community.

Your story can be anonymous if preferred, and can cover a wide range of topics, including:

  • Coping strategies that have helped you manage your grief

  • Positive experiences you have had with our agency or other grief support resources

  • Moments of personal growth and resilience you have experienced since the loss of a loved one

A place to share your unique experiences of loss and healing.

At the Centre for Grief and Healing, we recognize that everyone's journey with grief is unique and shaped by their individual identity, environment, and personal circumstances. Through our story-telling, we aim to provide a brave and supportive space for people to share their stories and perspectives on grief and loss.

By sharing our experiences, we can honor and validate the many ways that grief can manifest in our lives. We believe that telling our stories can also offer several benefits, including:

  • A sense of connection and community with others who have experienced loss.

  • A release of emotions and a sense of catharsis.

  • An opportunity to process and reflect on our own experiences of grief.

  • A chance to provide comfort and support to others who may be going through a similar experience.

  • The potential to inspire and empower others with our stories of resilience and healing.

We recognize that grief is a deeply personal and often painful experience, and we are committed to creating a supportive and empathetic community. We welcome all voices and experiences and hope that together we can create a space of healing, growth, and connection. We would like to assure you that the stories shared in our community will never be used for discriminatory purposes. They will only be used to support us and our community in advocating, promoting inclusivity, recognizing gaps in services and supports, and celebrating diversity. We invite you to join our community and share your story with us.

If you're interested in sharing your story or have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us. We're excited to hear from you and celebrate the differences and similarities of our community.
