SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity, is holding remote support sessions for those processing bereavement and loss, providing a creative outlet and a safe space to talk…

The two webinar sessions are run by SSAFA in collaboration with Brent Bereavement Service, for members of SSAFA’s support groups.

Session one

The first session, being held on Saturday 10 October, will be a question and answer style platform for those who want to learn more about the grief process and how it affects you and those around you. You’ll learn about how to support yourself in your daily life and to provide you will tools to support others. Throughout the session attendees don’t have to take part and can remain anonymous if they wish.

Session two

On Saturday 14 October, ‘Healing through Creativity’ will explore the use of creativity and art to enhance your own wellbeing. It will also touch on the use of art in remembering, as well as exploring the links between creativity and wellbeing; introducing practical ideas that you can try at home or to stimulate ideas you may wish to explore further yourself.
