Losing a person you love is one of life’s most difficult challenges. The grief process can include a range of feelings and reactions. Learning about the impact of grief and how to cope are some of the best ways to begin healing.
Sharing experiences and emotions in a safe environment can help you face the future with renewed hope.
JourneyCare is pleased to offer a wide range of grief support programs to adults, teens and children at no cost.
Our grief support programs include:
- Grief groups for adults who have lost a loved one
- Family workshops
- Support services for children and teens, including summer camps for kids
JourneyCare grief support groups, workshops and events provide a non-judgmental, confidential outlet for adults and youth who are grieving the loss of a loved one, whether by illness of trauma.
