8 Week Trauma Loss Grief Group


Our eight-week Trauma Loss Support Group is for those who have lost a loved one due to homicide, suicide, or drug overdose.  These unique losses carry an array of emotions that are overwhelming and intense.  The grief and pain that the survivors face is often mixed with guilt, anger, and sadness.  This group provides a safe place for you to tell your story to others who can relate to your feelings of grief.
