Grief Support Groups (Kilmarnock & Heathsville)

Holiday Season Grief Support Group (Kilmarnock)

Loss From Suicide Grief Support Group (Kilmarnock)

 The Grief Support Groups help participants explore their reactions to loss within a trusting and confidential environment. Participants learn about the grieving process and develop strategies for coping to begin to integrate this change in their lives. The groups are facilitated by a licensed professional counselor, clergy member, or trained facilitator.

The Kilmarnock and Heathsville Grief Support groups meet quarterly, and each 10-week series will refer to the book, Understanding Your Grief, Ten Essential Touchstones for Finding Hope and Healing Your Heart

The Loss From Suicide Grief Support Group meets in Kilmarnock for a 12-week series and will refer to the book, Understanding Your Suicide Grief: Ten Essential Touchtones for Finding Hope and Healing Your Heart.

Learn more about the new National Suicide Prevention Lifeline number (988) to call for mental health crises.

The Holiday Season Series is held in Kilmarnock from November 29, 2022 to January 3, 2023.

The Grief Support Groups are generously supported by a Robert B. Lantz Foundation Grant.
