OUR GUIDANCE AND SUPPORT

Our support groups are a great opportunity for you to listen and share, where anyone can ask questions, discuss their concerns, or share their experience with others who may be going through a similar experience.

In a warm and respectful environment, participants can acquire knowledge or draw inspiration from others in order to move forward in their grieving process and learn how to deal with it in their daily lives. These moments of reflection also help to better understand the emotions they are experiencing, whatever they may be, so that they can move toward physical, emotional and spiritual healing.

OUR SUPPORT GROUPS

  • Support groups for people in mourning—these meetings are held in person. They take place in Montreal and in surrounding areas upon request.
  • Open groups—these groups allow participants to share their daily life and what they are experiencing at that moment. The groups are open to anyone who is grieving, family members or friends, who want to take part, without any obligation.
  • Closed groups—These meetings provide an opportunity to explore and discuss the different stages of grief. Participants commit to attending a predetermined number of meetings.
  • Telephone group meetings—Take part in a teleconference group meeting which allows you to share your experiences with others, without having to leave your home.

With the exception of the teleconferences, the number of participants in each group is limited. The groups are moderated in either French or English.

To register for a group or for any questions about these services, call us toll-free at 1 (877) 725-7725, ext. 107. You can also send an email to Yves Lafleur, responsible for the program at ylafleur@sla-quebec.ca.
