Around the world Support Groups are used to ease the suffering of all kinds of distress and heartache. Research shows that attending a Support Group is a powerful way for people living with grief to find comfort, meaning and purpose.
UNDERSTANDING SUPPORT RECOVERY
At the Grief Centre, our Support Groups allow you the opportunity to listen and/or share your feelings in a safe and supportive setting. They help reduce feelings of isolation and make it possible to recognise how grief is both universal and yet differs for everyone. Understanding grief and its effects can help you to cope more effectively and support those around you while still protecting your own grieving process.
Our Support Groups are for anyone who is grieving, no matter when or how the loss occurred.
For many people, taking the step to attend a Grief Support Group is huge. Feeling nervous around who will be there; what people will think; what’s going to happen, and what you might get out of being there – if anything – is normal. Rest assured, we understand the challenge. We also know how much is gained from walking the journey of grief together with others who can offer understanding and support as you process your grief and move towards a path of recovery.
The Grief Centre currently hosts a range of Grief Support Groups both face-to-face and online. Our Wednesday and Youth Groups are bereavement specific, while the online group on Tuesday evening also includes support for grief of any kind. This includes the loss of connection, a relationship, a job, a home, the environment, culture, or the future.
