Coping with life-threatening diagnosis is hard. Where do you turn? What do you need to do to prepare for the end of your life's journey?

Northern Health's free grief and bereavement support program is available to help. Referrals to the program can be made by the individual, their doctor, any health care professional or community agency. 

 

If you feel that you need to speak to a Northern Health grief counselor in the Quesnel area, one is available Monday to Wednesdays.
