Grief Support Groups

When loved ones die or separate or divorce or experience illnesses that change their personality and behavior, survivors often suffer; they may feel deserted, sad, hopeless, angry, lonely, guilty, and many other feelings. There will be varied issues to deal with. A group of people who are confronting similar feelings and challenges can be very helpful. People often feel free to open up and describe feelings and issues and help one another solve problems in a group of strangers (who soon become friends).
