In partnership with Public Health Birmingham and through Public Health England’s Better Mental Health Fund we are humbled to announce the creation of our free peer to peer bereavement support service. From the 15th of January 2022 to the 28th of May 2022, we will be facilitating support groups for self-defining men, self-defining women and a general wellbeing group for those from the Muslim community.

If you have recently experienced a bereavement and are struggling, we at Start Fresh are here to support you. On the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Saturday of the month we will be running tailored support groups focused on supporting you through your ongoing bereavement journey. Our sessions will be being held at the Moseley Exchange, from January - May 2022, with refreshments and wellbeing spaces provided throughout the programme’s duration.

We understand how difficult the bereavement process is and can be and therefore will be ensuring our sessions will be facilitated by a registered BACP practitioner from Start Fresh, ensuring you receive friendly and professional support in a non-judgemental environment. Start Fresh are also working in collaboration with The Delicate Mind which is an award-winning mental health C.I.C that serves racialised communities.

Each session will run for two hours with the first hour being a safe space to explore grief in a supportive setting with others, the second hour will take form as an interactive lecture in which we will cover different science-based topics in a culturally competent manner that we believe will best support you through your process, such as neuroscience, CBT and coping mechanisms.

If this sounds like a service you would benefit from, we ask you to kindly click the link below and fill in our form for us to add you to our mailing list which will provide more specific updates regarding times, dates, general support advice and what to expect on the day.

We look forward to supporting you.
