Understanding Your Grief - SBPC Grief Support Group

Loss produces an ache….an emptiness….a sadness. It requires a major adjustment in life, one that most of us would rather avoid. Yet, loss is inevitable and it is in coming together and sharing our own unique journey through grief that the burden becomes lighter and we achieve a better understanding of our own grief.

Our Fall sessions will start September 11th, on Mondays and Thursdays. Please click below for more information.
