The January presentation of the “Living through Loss” series, titled “Understanding Depression Through Grief,” will be held from 7-8:30 p.m. Monday in the Marathon Auditorium at Blanchard Valley Hospital.

The program will assist the bereaved in identifying depression, understanding the difference between “feeling” and “being” depressed, and offer coping mechanisms for healthy grief. Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing, as there will be opportunity to participate in light exercise/yoga activities.

This series is sponsored by Bridge Home Health and Hospice. For questions, to learn upcoming events or to have a full program brochure sent to you, contact the Bridge bereavement coordinator at 419-423-5351 or email
