Have you and your family been affected by a workplace tragedy? Talk to others who “get it.”

Workplace Tragedy Peer Support Group

Threads of Life’s community peer support groups offer a safe and  compassionate space to share your thoughts, explore your feelings and connect with other people who are grieving due to a work-related death. Sessions will focus on healthy coping skills as together,
participants learn to live with their loss.

“We felt understood and realised we were no longer alone on a difficult journey.” - a recent peer group participant

Each meeting explores a different theme, such as:

  • Am I grieving normally?
  • Coping with special days, anniversaries and holidays
  • Taking care of yourself & practical day-to-day strategies
  • Secondary losses & changing relationships

The small groups will meet for weekly sessions and are facilitated by trained volunteers who have also experienced a loss. Our peer facilitators are not professional counselors; rather they have experienced a workplace tragedy in their own family and are on a similar journey.

At Threads of Life we recognize that each family is unique as are the relationships to your loved one. Registration is open to two members per family and may include parents, step-parents, siblings, spouses, adult children or grandparents. Participants must be 18 years or older. There is no cost to attend however pre-registration is required.

For more information or to register, please contact Kate Kennington, Family Support Manager at kkennington@threadsoflife.ca or 1-888-567-9490.
