Grief is a journey that everyone will travel at some point in their lives. Participate in a session with Melina Pearson the Outreach Coordinator with the Bereaved Families of Ontario - Midwestern Region.

Dealth by Substance Use and Community Impact explores how deaths by substance use are often traumatic for those affected.
