Grief and Bereavement
When someone we love has died our world can change dramatically, and it may be difficult to navigate the grieving process. Grief is a normal, healthy and healing emotion. Through education and support, the healing process begins.
- Good Grief Group: An eight-week educational and supportive program for people who have lost a loved one to cancer. Good Grief provides an opportunity for people to meet and talk with others who are grieving and learn ways to handle the changes that come after the loss of a loved one. The group is facilitated by Licensed Clinical Social Workers and counselors and is offered on a regular basis in various locations. Click here for our Good Grief registration form.
