  • Unable to be with a loved one when they die, or mourn the loss

Why attend?

1) It’s a safe place where you can go and talk about how you are feeling.

2) People in the group understand what you’re saying when many of your friends and family members don’t.

3) You will make new friends in a grief support group where are bonds formed that become very valuable when you’re having a tough time and you need someone to talk to.

4) It’s a place where people can share coping strategies. Some people who farther along in their grief journey can make suggestions about what worked for them and provide ideas and options, reading material, etc.
