Everyone’s experience with grief is unique. This grief support group offers a safe and welcoming space for anyone going through a journey of loss. Participants may choose to share their experiences and/or learn from others going through similar experiences. The group may focus on such issues as exploring the grieving process, handling extreme emotions, creating memorials for a loved one, coping with additional stressors, cultural and societal expectations on grieving, when to seek additional help, and other related issues as needed.
