Free Grief Support Group – for those who have lost a child

Begins Thursday March 5th from 6.30-8pm at Brant Mental Health Solutions

The loss of a child is a devastating time. As parents, we never want to think about experiencing that kind of grief, but if it does happen, we need support as we process our grief.

Join Psychotherapist, Sarah Potvin, as she facilitates a free grief support group for family members dealing with the loss of a child. This group is also open to families who have lost a child through miscarriage.

The group runs for 5 consecutive Thursdays.

University Prep Program – Helping young adults prepare for the next stage of their lives
When our children are ready to head off to University we wonder if they are ready to take on the challenges of independent life.

Sometimes the transition can be a difficult one.

That is why we are planning a three-part course this summer with our counsellor and life coach.

In his work with young adults, he is noticing common issues that arise when transitioning to an independent life and we hope to address them through this course and arm them with the tools they need to be successful.

This three-part course will have;
1. A mental health component – including time and stress management
2. A financial health component
3. A cooking/health component

Stay tuned for more information!
