When Grief Comes to Work: A Frontline Worker Support Group

Grief isn’t something we can take off like a uniform. When working in a field that exposes us to grief and loss, the deaths of those we serve and support can feel difficult to navigate. The pandemic has exposed us to many more types of loss including loss of autonomy, loss of relationships due to differing perspectives, loss of our sense of team with many leaving the field or taking jobs elsewhere, loss of our sense of purpose when the job we once loved no longer feels fulfilling, and much more.

The Dr. Bob Kemp Hospice in partnership with Hamilton Health Sciences (HHS) is offering a monthly group designed for frontline workers or those in roles that expose them to the many types of grief and loss experienced while working through the pandemic.

Do you need a place where you can feel cared for, express anger safely, be heard and validated? This group is for you.

 Facilitated by:

Ashley Mikitzel MSW, RSW

Manager of Bereavement and Supportive Care, Bob Kemp Hospice

Michelle Cassidy BA, MA

Mental Health Healthy Workplace Coordinator, Hamilton Health Sciences



There are two group times to best meet the needs of frontline workers. We ask individuals to please RSVP to one of two time slots each month.
