Grief research suggests that suffering personal losses can be particularly challenging when experienced in times of broader social stress. Loss of a loved one to COVID-19 can bring about complicated grief—a type of bereavement that is unusually difficult and long-lasting. From the sudden way the world changed, to the unanticipated decline in health of our loved ones, to the inability to hold memorials to honor them in their death all contribute to this unimaginable grief.

Join our experienced grief support group facilitators for a time of sharing, healing, and comfort each week as we continue to grieve together.
