Grief Support

Bereavement & Finding A SupportGroup

When a loved one dies, the bereaved family and friends need to mourn in order to move on with life. But healing also requires the support and understanding of those around them and in some cases, those outside their family and friends who have shared the same experience.

"There is strength in numbers," so the saying goes. Many individuals find that the support of others who share the common bond ofexperience can be one of the most helpful and beneficial resources. Support groups can be invaluable in facilitating the healing process.
