Joining a support group

Joining a support group

Asking for help after a loss can be extremely difficult. Often we find ourselves feeling isolated after a loss. Friends and family continue with their lives after paying their respects, and it feels like we’re left alone to pick up the pieces. Filing paperwork, emptying closets, and in general dealing with the silence.

Building a support system after loss

Building a support system after loss
