  • Understanding Grief

    Grief is a normal response to loss. There is no right or wrong way to grieve. It is a deeply personal experience, and individual grief reactions may vary not only from one person to another, but within the same person over time.
     
    Bereaved Families of Ontario - Midwestern Region offers peer-grief support to anyone in the community who needs it, so that no one walks this journey alone. This presentation is free of charge and everyone is welcome.
     
    Please RSVP by contacting the Bereaved Families of Ontario office at 519-603-0196.
