Covid-19 Update:
During this unprecedented time in our world, our issues of grief and bereavement can seem exacerbated. We all know what we need to do in regard to self-isolating and social (physical) distancing.  During this time we recommend that you reach out (virtually) to friends, family and other group members for support. This is an opportunity where we can forge new ways of support for ourselves and others.  We are truly all in this together.  United as a supportive community, we will persevere over Covid-19 and once again, be able to offer support group meetings in person.
Until then, we welcome you to visit our Resources page for information that may be helpful to you.  We wish you safety, health and send a virtual hug of support to all of you.

The Journey Though Loss Bereavement Support Group began in 1996 at the request of the Bereavement Services Committee of London, an organization of bereavement professionals from various agencies and interests whose purpose is to provide education to the community and to identify service needs for bereaved individuals.

The Journey Through Loss Bereavement Group is structured for individuals experiencing any type of loss related to death. The group meets weekly at an ideal facility in central London. The group averages 10-16 individuals per week. Referrals to the group come from hospitals, counsellors, therapists, service agencies, physician offices and word-of-mouth. Once an intake interview is completed, participants are welcomed to attend as often as they wish.

For more information or for an intake interview, please call: 519.782.5515 or email interview@journeythroughloss.ca.
