Believing that grief is a natural response to loss and a necessary process in adjusting to change, we endeavor to support the bereaved in their mourning. Support Groups strive to facilitate:
  • Expression of Emotion and Thought about loss, including sadness, pain anxiety, anger, loneliness, guilt, relief, solation confusion or numbness.
  • Challenges that often follow a loss can include: disorganization tiredness, trouble concentrating, sleep deprivation, vivid dreams and changes in appetite.
