Bereavement Networking Forum

Bereavement Networking Forum 

LeadingAge Ohio invites hospice bereavement professionals, chaplains and social workers to join its next Bereavement Networking Forum, scheduled for August 11 from noon-1pm. The virtual event will begin with an update from Ohio Director of Mental Health and Addiction Services Lori Criss, who will outline the DeWine Administration’s strategy for supporting the mental health needs of Ohioans through the COVID-19 pandemic.

COVID-19 has drastically impacted the way Ohioans grieve, with traditional rituals like funerals and gatherings now limited, and many secondary losses, including job/income loss, loss of roles and routines, and other factors further complicating the bereavement process.  

Attendees will have the opportunity to engage in small group discussions to share ideas, concerns and best practices they are adopting to support their communities.
