Community Bereavement Support Services
Due to the pandemic, we are currently hosting virtual bereavement support
groups via Zoom. Groups consist of 8 to 10 members and run for 6-8 weeks.
Each group meets once a week for 1.5 hours. The groups are free and registration
Bereavement Support Group
Support groups afford people the opportunity to meet in a caring and safe
environment with other people experiencing grief and loss. Groups provide
education on the grief experience following the death of a loved one.
We cover common grief reactions, coping strategies and self-care throughout
the grief process. We offer the following groups:
Loss of Spouse - Adults who have experienced the death of a spouse or partner
Loss of Parent - Adults who have experienced the death of a parent
Loss of a Child - Adult parents and guardians who have experienced the death of a child,
adolescent or adult child
Grief Support Group - Adults who have experienced the death of someone close
These groups are facilitated by social workers and trained volunteers and
overseen by licensed clinical social workers.
