How GriefShare Works

If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now.

GriefShare seminars and support groups are led by people who understand what you are going through and want to help. You’ll gain access to valuable GriefShare resources to help you recover from your loss and look forward to rebuilding your life. Visit GriefShare website for additional information (

When to Join a GriefShare Group

You are welcome to begin attending the GriefShare group at the first or any session. Each is “self-contained” so you do not have to attend in sequence. You will find encouragement and help whenever you begin. You will be able to continue with GriefShare through the remaining sessions in the 13-week cycle.
