Next Steps

Next Steps is a support group for individuals emerging from their first year of grief, which can often be one of transition, challenge and isolation. Grieving during a pandemic has added to the challenge. Many were unable to be with loved ones during their final moments, or to gather with family and community to collectively grieve. The world has been in isolation and everyone is tentatively taking next steps in life. This six-week group is designed with that in mind.

Tuesdays, 6:00-7:30 pm

October 5 - November 9, 2021

This is a virtual support group; please see instructions above.
