Amanda the Panda Support Groups

With the goal of promoting peer support and connectivity, support groups work to recognize how grief affects our minds and our bodies. Each activity helps participants identify and accept grief emotions like anger and guilt, learn healthy coping skills and create rituals to honor the loved one who has died. Six-week support group sessions are held throughout the year, with meetings taking place on Monday evenings. Every support group includes dinner followed by small group activities based on age and type of loss to facilitate discussion and sharing. Childcare is available upon request for children 0 to preschool-aged. Registration is required
