SUPPORT GROUPS & WORKSHOPS
Grief counselors facilitate interactive support groups in a confidential and comfortable environment in which participants share grief experiences with others. Adult support groups meet for six sessions. Our ongoing Moving Forward group meets monthly.
COMPASS offers groups for children/adolescents and their parents in a seven-session series. Click here to learn more about these groups.
Educational workshops provide general information about grief. Grief 101 meets monthly and is a prerequisite for adult support groups. Seminars are available for presentations in the community on various topics and can be customized to meet the needs of your group or organization.
Group Grief Support:
The year following a loss can be the most difficult for many. During this time, we will provide quarterly mailings and phone calls to remind you of our grief support services. You may choose to decline these calls and mailings but remember that you can reach out to us for grief support at any time. Click here if you would like to receive call and/or mailings.
