Henry Mayo Grief Support Group Aids Healing Process


Henry Mayo hosts support group for those mourning and grieving the death of an adult loved oneHenry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital

Each person responds differently to the death of someone who has been important to them. And although grief is a normal and necessary process to help one adjust to a loss, it’s not a process that has to be endured alone. For that reason, Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital is hosting a Grief Support Group to help all those who are mourning and grieving the death of an adult loved one.

The purpose of the group is to offer a safe environment for people to share their feelings, discuss their fears, learn more about the grieving period, and begin the healing process.

The group will meet the first and third Wednesday of each month. The first meeting will be held on Wednesday, April 17, from 6 to 8 p.m., in the HR building, Room 2, at Henry Mayo. Admission is free.

•              Factors that make the grief experience unique

•              Typical myths about grief and mourning

•              Ways to help you heal from the pain of loss

•              Feelings and reactions to a significant loss
