Health & Wellness

The focus of the Health & Wellness Program is grief and loss, mental health, suicide awareness and intervention, and advocating total wellness of one’s self.

Grief and Loss Program

Our Grief and Loss program provides presentations, information, one-on-one and group support to individuals and families dealing with some sort of crisis, loss, trauma or every day stress.

The Program facilitates a Parent Bereavement Support Group the first Thursday of every month where anyone can attend to help find support after losing a child or baby.

Presentations and workshops on grief and loss are also offered in the community, often targeting front-line caregivers and other social service staff.

Please contact our office to learn more.

Health & Wellness Highlights

Other Services provided by Health & Wellness program:

Next of Kin (NOK)

When someone dies, that person’s closest blood relatives are notified in a process known as Next of Kin notification (NOK). Some Other Solutions conducts the NOK upon request when bereaved people find it difficult to tell the news to children, parents, siblings, etc. This process is performed by the Health & Wellness manager, who has been professionally trained to conduct this process.

Health & Wellness - Grief and Loss Testimonial

Some Other Solutions provides one on one support for those going through the phases of the grief cycle.

See our events for upcoming community and schedule events.
