Bereaved Families of Ontario - Midwestern Region
We are currently recruiting peer support facilitators for our Living with Loss Program in Mount Forest. Personal, lived experience is what is required to be a peer facilitator with BFO-MR. You aren’t expected to have all the answers. You aren’t expected to “fix” anyone. You aren’t expected to know all there is to know about grief. As a facilitator you bring your experience into group. You encourage conversation, dialogue and an exploration of thoughts, feelings and emotions. You help others share their story. You help them understand they are not alone.
