Good Grief: Virtual Support group for teens

This program is a joint initiative of Hummingbird Centre for Hope and Bereaved Families of Ontario – Midwestern Region  

Due to current restrictions, we have transitioned our Good Grief pilot program to a virtual format and will be offering it over the course of the summer to support grieving teens.

Good Grief focuses on helping teens understand and cope with grief after a death. This group will offer a safe and supportive atmosphere in which teens can work through their feelings and share their experiences with a group of peers. The group will be offered four times throughout July and August. Teens can come as often or as little as needed and aren’t required to participate in all four sessions (although we’d love to see them there).

The group will be offered from 7-8 p.m. on:

  • Tuesday July 7
  • Tuesday July 21
  • Tuesday August 4
  • Tuesday August 18

Our registration link will take you to the BFO-Midwest webpage. 


Finding HOPE Support Group

By coming together in a safe and understanding environment, members will share experiences, learn about grief and create their own toolkit of resources to help navigate through their own grief journey.

This group is for men and women whose partner or spouse has died and who have dependent children at home and who are in the early stages of grief.

Goals of this group are to:

  • build a community of support with others who have experienced a similar loss
  • provide education about grief
  • create realistic expectations of your own grief journey
  • learn coping tools and strategies
  • share stories
  • understand children’s grief and how we can support them

This is an 8 week support group that meets once a week for 2 hrs.
Please register and we will be in touch with next session dates.
