Group Support

Losing a loved one is one of life’s most difficult challenges. The grief process can include a range of feelings and reactions. Learning 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.

Pre-registration is required. Please call 224-770-2273 to RSVP.
