Please join Moms Stop the Harm as we host a “Grief Conference – Healing After a Substance Use Related Passing” from October 26 – 28th, 2022. Families, grief supporters and professionals are invited to attend this important conference as we speak to the immeasurable grief families are experiencing from the Toxic Drug Poisoning Crisis taking place across Canada.
Our keynote speaker is renowned author, Dr. Alan Wolfelt (Founder & Director of the Center for Loss and Life Transition). Participants can expect to participate in a variety of workshops led by well known authors and experts in the field of Bereavement support. The conference will include sessions on supporting youth who have experienced a loss related to substance use and a panel of individuals with lived experience who will share their healing journey of loss and discuss the stigma related to a loss from toxic drug poisoning. Our conference ends with an important session on self care and self compassion in grief
