Bereavement Support Group

The IWK Health Centre will be holding Grief and Bereavement Support Group sessions starting in October 2009 for children and teens who have lost a loved one. Participants will be given the opportunity to express grief through group exercises and expressive arts, led by trained facilitators and volunteers who have been screened by the IWK.

The children’s support group, for ages six to 12 years, will meet on Wednesdays from 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., from October 21, 2009 to December 9, 2009. The teen support group, for ages 13 to 18 years, will take place as a retreat during Winter 2010 (date to be determined).

Pre-registration is required for participation in these sessions. For registration or referrals, please contact Nick Zwaagstra, Bereavement Coordinator, IWK Health Centre, by phone at 902-470-8942 or via email at
