Grief Support Centres and Resources
PACT has a relationship with many grief support centres in the GTA and across Ontario. Please have a look at the map below to gain a better understanding of what resources are available in your specific community.
Hover your cursor over the markers, and a description of services and contact information will appear. Please note that this map functions best in Google Chrome, not Internet Explorer.
If you as families learn of other organizations that offer support groups or activities at no or minimal cost to families, please let us know and we will review them and link them. Please email your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org
As well, there are GriefShare groups starting across Ontario- their website has a search function: http://www.griefshare.org/findagroup. GriefShare's Model is: GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life's most difficult experiences. You don't have to go through the grieving process alone. Most groups are held in community churches, but are open to people of all faiths. They are general bereavement groups and currently there are no specific parent focused groups. They run on a model of support, education and self-reflection, so will meet the needs of many. Feel free to let us know how you have found the experience.
