Groups are formed based on types of loss, such as loss of spouse, child, parent, friend, sibling, divorce, suicide survivor, and transitional loss. These are peer support groups with a facilitator, however these are not intended to be counseling sessions. Each Session is complete in itself. You are welcome to attend one or all.
