Between family obligations, work commitments and winter weather, the holiday season brings a  stressful experience. Take some time for yourself next week and join the virtual December Funeral Professionals Peer Support meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 19, 2023, at 8 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. CT / 5 p.m. PT.

Long nights, family obligations and the strain of a busy workplace are often the hallmarks of this festive month — but a connection with your fellow funeral professionals can help alleviate some of the pressure.

On Dec. 19, Kim Zavrotny will facilitate the monthly peer support meeting for us all to take some time to unwind with people who “get it.” As the senior funeral director at McComas Family Funeral Homes, the U.S. program director of Funeral Professionals Peer Support, and a dedicated community volunteer, parent and spouse, she understands that this time of year has stressors and joys. Join the conversation to share your experience and lend an ear to your colleagues.

For reasons both cheerful and challenging, December can be packed full of obligations. If you cannot attend this peer support meeting, or are seeking support outside of this time, Funeral Professionals Peer Support’s Warmline is open 24/7 for calls and texts. Connect with someone who understands what you are going through: 613-917-8057 (call or text).

Connect with your fellow funeral professional peers — and offer support to your colleagues — on Dec. 19 via the Zoom link at No registration is required, simply follow the link to join.
