Fellow loss survivor
The S.O.S. group in Cape Breton is a self-help group that was developed to provide individuals and families who have suffered a loss of a loved one with a critical resource. The intent is to allow survivors to help each other through shared stories, memories, and coping skills. We are not trained counselors. We are survivors who choose to be present to others to provide hope and share resources that promote healing.
If you would like to attend one of our meetings we would be glad to have you. We ask that the group members respect the anonymity of others at the meetings, and that we are respectful of others’ coping strategies. What goes on in the group, stays in the group.
Meetings held monthly except in December when there is no meeting. Check our website for the meeting schedule and/or cancellations.
