Bushel Hosts Lunchtime Documentary Screening of Speaking Grief March 21

Written By Editor on 3/7/23 | 3/7/23

DELHI —On Tuesday March 21, 12:30 to 2 pm, Bushel presents a brown-bag lunchtime screening of the documentary film Speaking Grief, followed by a Q&A led by Kristen Jastremski, LCSW, CT, bereavement counselor at Helios Care. This event is free and open to the public. Bushel is located at 106 Main Street, Delhi.

Speaking Grief explores the transformative experience of losing a family member in a death- and grief-avoidant society. "It is so important for us to recognize and be better able to support those experiencing grief,” says Kristen Jastremski. “WPSU and the New York Life Foundation have put together a very moving film that can help us to open the conversation about grief."

The Speaking Grief initiative ( is working to normalize the universal yet stigmatized human experience of grieving. This national public media initiative includes a television documentary, media-rich website, social media campaign, and numerous community engagement events, all aimed at starting a national conversation about grief. Produced by WPSU Penn State with philanthropic support and outreach collaboration from The New York Life Foundation, this initiative seeks to normalize grief through candid interviews and help people become more comfortable with the many faces, forms, and personal experiences of grief.

This presentation is organized by Helios Care (, a nonprofit agency that serves the communities of Delaware, Otsego, and Schoharie Counties. The mission of Helios Care is to make life easier for patients and families facing serious illness and end of life by providing choices, dignity, and compassionate care. Helios Care continues to provide support to patient’s families by offering grief counseling, support groups, and community healing programs. Counseling is also available to community bereaved through special programming.
