Welcome to the BC Bereavement Helpline

The BC Bereavement Helpline (BCBH) is here for you. We are a non-profit, free, and confidential service that connects the public to grief support services within the province of BC. Whether you are looking for bereavement support groups, community events, information on BC Bereavement Day, information on how to donate or to volunteer with us you will find it here. Please call the BC Bereavement Helpline and speak with one of our caring volunteers for information on our bereavement support groups, agencies, and peer-based support.

Your call is free, confidential, and anonymous. We will help you find the most appropriate support for your specific type of loss.

We are participating in the Scotiabank Group Charity again this year in order to raise money for the BC Victims of Homicide Initiative. BCVOH provides support groups for those who have been bereaved by homicide as well as training sessions for professionals who work with those bereaved by homicide. For more information, or to join or donate, see the Charity Challenge page.
