6-Week Grief Support Group

This support group is for those who have had a significant loss through death. Since there is no time limit on grief, we put no time constraints on when your loss occurred. We will begin each week with a short educational session and then spend time telling and listening to stories from the group. We will meet six times – once weekly on Wednesdays from April 12th – May 17th.

Registration is required so that the group is consistent for the six weeks we meet. Each week’s discussion will build on the previous week. There is room for up to 12 people in the group so be sure to register early! This class is free and open to the public.
