What you can expect:

You will hear from a different guest speaker each month who will share their stories and experiences.

As well, participants are encouraged to share and connect and build relationships and connections.

It is a night with no expectations, just a safe space for us to connect. 

An evening to bring together those working the front line, to talk, listen, share, and connect.

As members working the front-line and supporters of these members, we have a unique thread that links us all together and there is a powerful strength that happens when we come together and build relationships with one another. 

~ Are you a member of the front-line?

~ Are you a family member or close friend of someone on the front-line?

~ Are you looking to connect with others?

~ Looking to share your story and feel heard and supported?

~ Feeling alone and like nobody understands what you are going through?

Guest Speaker: Ashley Mielke

In honour of the 10-year anniversary of Ashley's father’s death by suicide on November 26, 2020, God put a call on Ashley's heart to create a campaign built on hope; hope for those who are silently struggling with thoughts of suicide and hope for those whose hearts have been broken by the death of a loved one to suicide.


When Ashley's father died, hope was all she had to hold onto. As she navigated the darkest and most painful time of her life, hope was believing that her life had meaning and that better days were ahead of her.

Ashley Mielke is a Registered Psychologist, Advanced Certified Grief Recovery Specialist®, and Founder and Director of The Grief and Trauma Healing Centre Inc. in Edmonton, Alberta. Ashley is also an international speaker and the exclusive Canadian Certification Trainer for the Grief Recovery Institute.

Ashley has facilitated workshops for multi-million-dollar corporations, non-profit organizations, small businesses, the Government of Canada, and the City of Edmonton. Ashley co-authored a book titled, Postpartum Grief, she is a frequent media contributor, and she has been featured in Huffington Post Canada, Canadian Funeral News, Canadian Living, and Edmonton Lifestyle News. 

Ashley is a heart-centred, purpose-driven leader, with a deep passion for serving others who have experienced loss of any kind. Ashley was called to her purpose in the wake of a number of painful losses in her own life, including the tragic death of her father. Ashley’s personal healing fueled her passion to empower others to move beyond the pain and loneliness caused by loss and reclaim their sense of well-being and purpose. Nothing makes Ashley feel more alive than the opportunity to impact others' lives through the shared human experience of loss.
