INDIVIDUAL PEER SUPPORT SESSIONS

We want to ensure that every grieving child, teen, adult and family has the opportunity to share their feelings, thoughts and story in a safe, non-judgmental space. For some, group settings might not be the best option, therefore we also offer individual peer support sessions where you can talk to a staff member individually.

MORE ABOUT OUR INDIVIDUAL PEER-SUPPORT SESSIONS

Before any participant can join our support groups, they must have an initial individual peer support session with one of our staff. Following the initial support session, participants are able to join a group, continue with individual support, or do a combination of both. 

We do not offer counselling, we offer peer-support. Peer-support is emotional and practical support between two people who share a similar experience, such as the loss of a loved one. Our peer-support workers are not certified counsellors or therapists.

We offer individual peer-support sessions for ages 6 and up, ensuring that all grieving individuals have an opportunity to receive support. There is a limit of 6 individual peer-support sessions per person, however, there is no limit to the number of groups an individual can attend and participants are more than welcome to join a group following their individual peer-support sessions.

All of our programs, including our individual peer-support sessions are free and have no waitlist.

HOW DO I GET STARTED WITH AN INDIVIDUAL PEER-SUPPORT SESSION?

Getting support is quick, free and easily accessible. 

 

To get started, please fill out our intake form and a team member will contact you within 24-48 business hours to set up an initial individual peer-support session.
