This 8-week support group is designed to offer a safe space for individuals who are currently grieving the death of someone in their lives. The sessions will be loosely structured based on the needs and interests of group members. Common topics addressed could include: what are normal grief reactions, identifying coping skills, and how participants are navigating holidays and special celebrations.
This is meant to be an interactive group and as such, participants will be invited to share their experiences with one another.
Dates: March 3rd through April 21 (8 sessions)
Time: 4:00 PM – 5:30 PM
