New Course Launches for those affected by Bereavement

In the next couple of months here at The Parish trust, we are running courses aimed at improving the overall mental health and wellbeing of members in our local community. The first course we are offering in July is focused on bereavement, loss and the experience of grief.

Bereavement and loss affects every part of our lives and in a variety of different ways and can have a significant effect on our health and wellbeing. Called the ‘Bereavement Journey,’ this course is for anybody who has been bereaved at any time and in any way.  

The course will be run here at the Parish Trust and will be over the span of six weekly sessions. The course will cover topics like: attachment, separation and loss, difficult feelings, rites of passage, the impact and pain of bereavement, coping with others, coping with change, moving forward, an optional session on questions of Faith.  

Our Wellbeing Coordinator, Luke Coleman, said,

This course will be an invaluable opportunity for individuals to reflect upon their own grief experiences, to openly and safely share it with others and gain tools to help them along in their unique experience of grief. I am excited  to be involved in this course and my hope is that it can benefit members of our community in a restorative and impactful way.

Current Bereavement Journey Courses available at the Parish Trust

Courses will run at The Parish Trust in Trethomas. There is a nominal charge of £7 per attendee which covers the whole 6 week course and the course booklet. If cost is prohibitive, please contact us as there are some bursaries available to ensure that no one is disadvantaged.

Daytime Course: Monday 18th July at 1pm until 3pm (and the following 5 weeks)

Evening Course: Thursday 21st July at 7pm until 9pm (and the following 5 weeks)

Both sessions will run weekly for six consecutive weeks at The Parish Trust HQ.

If you know anyone within the local community that would benefit from this course, please feel free to share this information with them.
