Grief Support Group

The Grief Support group at Lakewood Health System provides a six-week series which will provide resources and mutual support to travel your grief journey. Discussion topics will include various aspects of the grieving process – the emotions of grief: (shock, denial, anger, depression, guilt, hope, renewal and acceptance), holiday grief, coping resources, multiple losses, healing, and reinvestment. Under the guidance of group facilitators, participants will share in supportive conversation and fellowship with others who share a common bond through their own experiences of grief. Two sessions (each six weeks in length) are offered at Lakewood Health System. For specific dates and times, please contact the Education Department at 218-894-8623.
