Lunch & Learn Series: When Grief is Complicated

Online via Zoom

Grief is how we respond when we experience loss. Everyone experiences grief and many people associate grief with the death of someone close to them. Grief is also a common reaction when someone in their lives is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. Grief is complicated.

National Bereavement Day

The third Tuesday in November marks the annual National Bereavement Day in Canada. Bereavement refers to the time when a person experiences sadness after losing a loved one. We encourage you to remember that grief and bereavement are a part of life and should be talked about.
