Grief Café to help those struggling with loss

“The Grief Café is an opportunity for anyone struggling with loss in their life, loss and sadness and bereavement,” said organizer Cynthia Breadner.

The first session will be on Feb. 23, and Breadner said she is planning on running them twice a month in drop-in style.

“It’s an opportunity to verbalize or bring to the forefront, in a safe environment and with permission, to focus some light on whatever that grief is,” Breadner said.

When one thinks of grief, it’s often associated with the death of a loved one. But there are several ways someone can experience grief, such as the death of a pet, the loss of a relationship and life-threatening illness, Breadner said.
