GLoW Initiative: Grief, Loss and Wellness

Founded in January 2021, GLoW Initiative offers supports to frontline workers, community-facing management and coordinators, and community supporters who have been impacted by the trauma and overwhelming loss of the overdose crisis. 1-1 and group support is delivered by community members and practitioners, and is free of charge.

Year 1 (2021-2022) of the Initiative focuses on providing direct grief, loss and wellness supports to those on the frontlines (including peers and community members who are not formally employed in frontline positions). Years 2 & 3 (2022-2023) will expand the program to include capacity building supports, such as skill-building trainings and resources to support teams and communities to respond to grief and loss.
