By Michèle Miller Brown, HOPE Program –

HOPE Bereavement Peer Support Group meetings are open to family members (spouses and parents) of Canadian Armed Forces members and veterans as well as active and retired service members who have lost a spouse or adult child.

The groups meetings are a safe and confidential place where you can share and talk about what you are going through with peers with similar lived in experience.

You are not alone!
