Facilitator

Bereavement Groups

Allyson has facilitated many bereavement groups throughout her years working in palliative care. As the Palliative Care Coordinator for Hospice Quinte, Allyson facilitated grief support groups for children, youth and adults coping with loss.

In recent years she partnered with The Enrichment Centre for Mental Health as a Co-Facilitator for several grief groups that supported families who have suffered a loss by suicide. Currently, Allyson is working with Addictions and Mental Health HPE to facilitate bereavement groups for their clients who are dealing with the loss of a loved one.

SafeTALK

As a trained facilitator Allyson’s portfolio also includes SafeTALK – (Suicide Alertness for Everyone).

Allyson works with The Enrichment Centre for Mental Health to offer half day training sessions in SafeTALK.  SafeTALK stands for Suicide Alertness for Everyone.  This half day course trains you to identify people with thoughts of suicide and it teaches you to connect them to a suicide first aid resource. 

If you are interested in having Allyson Tufts facilitate a training session at your workplace or if you’d like to join a session at the centre, please contact her at 613-243-7746 or email her at allysontufts1@gmail.com.
