Walk us through the average format of your group session.

"We start the session on time. The session is started with the general rules and protocols of the peer support, followed by an introduction of the facilitator. Participants can choose to disclose their name if they wish to, or they can choose to remain anonymous. We then get started into the topic of the meet. We ask starter questions or prompts that may help members contribute to the conversation. The session lasts for one hour."

What do you hope for participants in your group to take back with them after a session?

"We hope the participants find a safe space where they can talk about their grief without any fear of judgement. We hope they take back a feeling of support. Their grief will not disappear, and it may not get lighter either, but they might feel comforted and supported and have a space where they can express their feelings."
