If you have experienced a significant loss and have acclimated to your grief, we invite you to consider becoming GrieveWell Peer Counselor. A comprehensive training workshop and regular Peer Counselor meetings conducted by a licensed social worker ensure that all Peer Counselors learn about the grief process and are prepared to support others traveling through that journey. Once they have complete the training, Peer Counselors may be matched with a client and are expected to meet with the client one hour per week (or as determined by the client/Peer Counselor) for approximately one year. Through friendship and mentorship, you can show others that it is possible to learn to live a full life after loss!
***Next Peer Counselor training will be held October 2017***
