Journey Through Grief - A Free Online Class

Everybody will be touched by the experience of loss and grief at one point in life. While this is an inevitable experience, it still challenges us and sets us on an emotional journey to understand ourselves, our relationships, and the world around us.


As we understand the difficulty of dealing with the loss of a loved one on your own, The WestView Primary Care Network is now offering a free virtual class to help you on the road to healing, Journey Through Grief. This is a 2-hour online class offered by registered health professionals over a period of 8 weeks as part of our Healthy Living classes.

By attending Journey Through Grief, you are expected to gain the following outcomes: 


  • Understanding grief and the different stages you may go through along the way: The path to healing is not linear and different emotions can surface at different times. It is essential to understand that your journey is unique and to be self-aware of your emotions as steps towards healing.


  • Learning about tools and coping mechanisms: Develop a tool kit that will help you understand yourself better and learn skills to cope more effectively with your loss of a loved one. You will learn a variety of coping mechanisms that suit your unique needs. Tools include journaling, art work, joining support groups, and more. The better equipped you are, the more resilient you will be.


  • Understanding the importance of support: In addition to focusing on your own individual journey, as a participant in a support class, you will also find solace in the shared experiences of others who have also faced loss. This class is a safe place to express your emotions as well as actively listen to others. Ultimately, you will realize you are not alone and will find strength in companionship and expert guidance.



Journeying through grief can be one of life’s most profound experiences and you don’t have to set on it alone. Please see the class dates and time below and get in touch with the WestView Primary Care Network if you have any questions and for registration.
