Time & Location
About The Event
*****NOTE: NEW ZOOM LINK******* TONIGHT'S SUGGESTED DISCUSSION TOPICS: 1. "Grief is like the ocean, it comes in waves." Talk about the experience of grief hitting you out of nowhere; washing over you. 2. What does your grief journey look like? These are only suggested topics; the floor is open to anyone who wants to speak about whatever is on their mind. ******EVENT DESCRIPTION******* Our Peer Support Group has been hosted on a weekly basis via Zoom due to the restrictions arising from COVID-19. We will continue this on a regular basis even as restrictions are lifted. The virtual meeting is open to widows and widowers of all ages. We believe in the importance of having a safe space to open up about the pain and grief that stems from loss and finding support from others who have also suffered from loss - especially during challenging times like these. The goal is to focus on talking and listening to one another and lifting each other up. Agenda: -Discuss group guidelines to ensure safety and confidentiality -Icebreakers for participants to get to know each other and feel comfortable -The floor will then be open to anyone who wants to speak about whatever is on their mind-- resurfaced memories, grief, new relationships, whatever it may be. -Close out the session and offer materials, such as grief resources, other support groups, partner services, etc.
