Mandate

The AIDS Bereavement and Resiliency Program of Ontario responds to effectively mitigate the impact of AIDS grief and loss on organizations, staff and volunteers and community members living with HIV/AIDS. To achieve this we:

  • Assist in the assessment and enhancement of individual and agency coping strategies related to loss and transition.
  • Develop and deliver agency interventions, educational presentations, workshops, retreats and research initiatives incorporating evidence-based knowledge and bereavement expertise.
  • Provide innovative training to organizations, staff and people living with HIV/AIDS to increase communication skills, peer support and community resiliency strategies.
  • Ensure excellence in our work through the development of sustaining, relevant, creative and evolving responses to the changing nature of loss within diverse AIDS-impacted communities.
