Because grief is a normal response to loss, it is not a “condition” that needs to be treated. But support groups and individual grief counseling can be a great source of support for those who are grieving or those who are facing the death of a loved one.

Grief support offers a place where you can:

  • Express your feelings of grief and be validated.
  • Learn about the grief process.
  • Reflect upon your natural strengths and use them to get through this difficult time.
  • Talk about your loved one and tell the story over and over again.
  • Sort through the stresses and anxieties that me come with new roles and responsibilities of caregiving and loss.
  • Openly struggle with questions like: Why did this happen? What meaning does this have for me and my life? How do I want to move forward?

Support groups offer a unique opportunity to share in the grieving experiences of others. For some, this can provide an invaluable sense of "being understood." Others find individual counseling most helpful. And, for some, the two may complement each other.
