The WRSPC is a non profit, voluntary council comprised of 20 representatives from Waterloo Region. The WRSPC strives to maintain equal representations from professionals/organizations dealing directly with suicidal behavior, associated professionals (faith community, teachers) and the community (family, friends and individuals affected by suicide).
Here is our winter newsletter full of information and updates. Take a look!
This is a 9 week closed group specifically designed for individuals who are facing the unique challenges of a traumatic grief after a family member or friend has died by suicide. A loss after suicide is considered complicated grief, and as such, it is more severe and longer lasting. The group not only provides a cathartic experience, but it also provides an opportunity for individuals to connect with others in an intimate manner. An eclectic variety of techniques including guided mourning, mindfulness and client-centred approach to self-awareness and empathy will be explored.
Hundreds of individuals in our community have benefited from this group and highly recommend it.
“I took this group seven years ago and still use many of the tools I learned in the group today. It was so beneficial for my healing.” – Suicide bereaved survivor, sibling and granddaughter.
There are four groups throughout the year in Waterloo, Cambridge, Elmira and Wellington.
