10-week Grief and Loss Support Group

After losing a loved one, the feelings of loss can be very difficult to endure. Everyone deals with these feeling differently, but having the support and compassion of other people who are going through the same thing can be very comforting and healing.

Friendship Centers of Emmet County is offering a 10-week Grief and Loss Support Group and Educational Series beginning October 7. The group will be led by Lori Lind, Social Worker, and will meet every Monday at the Petoskey Friendship Center through December 9 from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. Group size will be limited to 5 participants.

Some of the topics to be discussed at these group meetings include the factors that may influence your grief experience, how to recognize the signs and symptoms of your personal grief journey, and methods of healthy coping to assist you throughout this difficult time in your life. This support group will provide a safe place for its members to share their stories of loss and express their feeling openly.

For more information or to sign up for this support group, please call Lori Lind at the Council on Aging at (231) 347-3211, ext. 22 or (888) 347-0369.
