Compassionate Friends

Compassionate Friends are not counsellors or therapists,   they are people who have journeyed the same road you are now travelling if your family is grieving the loss of a child. Lee Ferguson has information about an upcoming sharing circle.

"It's a place for people to talk about their loss and their emotions that they are going through at the time, and they go through many different kinds of emotions when you are grieving a child. And they get to vent that out, and cry and that is just a more natural healing."

The next sharing circle is Monday, November 07 at the OCN CFS Main Office, 225 Waller Road. For further information call Lee at 1–204–472–3968.
