Suicide Bereavement Program Volunteers

Suicide Bereavement Program Volunteers 

Come and volunteer with other amazing individuals that are as committed to helping, learning and growing as you are!

We are looking for volunteers for our Suicide Bereavement program. All of our volunteers must have experienced a loss to suicide and be at a place in their healing where they are committed and able to support other suicide survivors in their unique grief journey.

All volunteers must be comfortable sharing their experiences, listening to others stories, and providing empathetic support.

Some of our volunteer opportunities include:

  • Co-facilitation of our suicide bereavement drop-in group and 8 week structured group;
  • One-on-one peer support, and committee members for our annual Survivors of Suicide Loss Day.

Potential volunteers will go through an initial interview with a counsellor to be considered for the 2-day training – Next date To Be Confirmed.  Please note that training is usually held on a Saturday & Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
