Grief and Loss Support Group

This is a 12 week group for adults! The grief support group allows those who have had any major loss, which is not limited to, lost a loved one, to share their struggles with others who have experienced a similar loss. This group will include psychoeducation on grief, loss, and bereavement. It will also help clients to understand the grief cycle, range of emotions, and understanding of how their grief is individual to them. Alongside psychoeducation, there will be time in every group for members to share openly with one another about their own losses and receive support and be given an opportunity to develop coping skills and strategies by the group leader.

**All clients will need to go through a screening process with Kendall to determine appropriateness for the group.**
