MedWest to offer monthly grief support group

Apr 07, 2014

MedWest Haywood will host a monthly grief support group at Long’s Chapel UMC on the first Friday of each month from noon to 1 p.m. The group is open to anyone in the community who finds themselves adjusting to life after the death of a loved one of any age or relationship type.

The meetings will be informal in their nature, designed to meet the needs of the attendees. All sessions will be facilitated by a licensed clinician.  Emphasis will be on creating a safe environment in which to explore one’s own experience of grieving, while working through the tasks of mourning.

Group members will commit to confidentiality and will be encouraged to provide support to each other.  Grief education will be offered upon request and resources will be shared as appropriate. Those with questions may call Robin at 452-5039.
