Grief Support Group

Published February 12, 2021

Given the challenges of grieving during the COVID-19 pandemic and limited access to support, we believe this group can be helpful in creating a space for individuals who have experienced a loss either as a result of the pandemic or unrelated to the pandemic. 

This group is designed for students who have lost a loved one through death.  The overall mission is to provide space, acceptance and support for people to mourn the loss of their loved one and to acknowledge the many feelings associated with grief and loss.  The semi-structured, support group will provide information on unique and different styles of grieving, and challenges of grieving. The group will also provide a space to discuss helpful strategies to support the mourner in their unique grief journey.
