While the Grief Centre is committed to begin virtual and some in-person services and programs such as 1 to 1 counselling, peer group activities, and Parent/Caretaker groups by late Summer and early Fall 2022, we encourage those seeking resources or immediate support to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we may try to help direct you to resources and services by other potential agencies in the interim.

Where's the Grief
Jordon Ferber is a comedian whose 21-year-old brother died in a car accident in 2002. He found 'dealing with a traumatic loss while simultaneously doing comedy, somewhat surreal.' Jordon shines his comedy torch onto topics some would rather leave in peace and chairs the chat with other comedians to tease out their unique perspectives on grief.
Grief Out Loud
Grief Out Loud seeks to ice-break this conversation stopper of a subject. Grief is tough enough without having to deal with it alone. Listen in for personal stories and advice for grieving children and teens from bereavement experts. The producers – Oregon's Dougy Center for Grieving Children and Families – know their stuff and leave the cliches at the door.
