Let’s Talk Death:
Conversations to Inform and Inspire
It’s time to take the “taboo” out of the topics surrounding dying, death, and grief.
Our core belief here at HealGrief is that no one should ever grieve alone, that is why we are always evolving to bring you more social support services and programs! Let’s Talk Death, is our newest venture.
Our goal with this program is to help inform our HealGrief community and the community at large about issues related to grief and loss, while also inspiring individuals to further explore topics that feel relevant in their life.
This web-based show is a hybrid between a podcast and a webinar. Every month we will bring you a 15-20 minute pre-recorded episode that lets you listen in to a casual conversation with guests and show hosts. Let’s Talk Death episodes will bring you topics such as end of life issues, pre-planning, and grief as seen by researchers, authors, bereavement support professionals, bereaved individuals, and community members.
