Grief, loss and wellness supports for frontline workers, community peer supporters and community-facing management were launched in Spring 2021. Breakaway recognizes the many definitions of wellness we hold, and therefore includes practitioners from a wide variety of backgrounds and modalities.

Group-Based Wellness Supports

Wellness nights for frontline workers and community responders continue to be held once a month for 2023. If you’d like to receive information about upcoming group/drop in wellness spaces for workers and community supporters (both online and in person), please ask to be added to our mailing list by emailing Morgan G at [email protected]

Wellness nights include body-based care, such as acupuncture, drum circles and sound baths, as well as a meal and as-needed counselling support.
