DROP-IN GRIEF SESSIONS

 

Drop-in sessions are available for individuals choosing MAiD, those supporting someone through MAiD, or people grieving a MAiD death.

Drop-in sessions are 60 minutes in length (can be extended to 90 minutes with participant approval/ interest) and are an opportunity to connect, discuss and share with others who understand and appreciate the experience. 

All sessions are hosted via Zoom. These sessions are an opportunity to provide informal  peer-to-peer support to individuals journeying through MAiD.
