Grief Support Groups

It can be very helpful and supportive to meet with others who have also experienced the loss of a loved one. Support groups provide an opportunity to share stories, to simply listen, to encourage others and be encouraged, and to have our feelings supported by the facilitator and group members.

Our grief support groups are facilitated by experienced bereavement support specialists and are specific to the loss one has experienced. Group sessions are closed once the session begins. Because of space limitation and confidentiality, we regret that we cannot allow guests of participants to attend. Advance registration is required. Please contact the Center for Grief & Healing to register. Call (559) 248-8579 or email: centerforgriefandhealing@hindshospice.org.
