St. Mary’s Hospice Services is now accepting applications for its Healing Grief workshop, a free 7-week program for adults who have lost a loved one through death.
The group will meet from 2-4 p.m. each Thursday from April 5 through May 24 at Chapelwood United Methodist Church, 100 Janice Drive, Athens. In this private setting, participants will learn ways to better cope with the death of their loved one in a supportive group environment.
The professionally facilitated group takes an educational and supportive approach to healing. Topics will include understanding grief; remembering, accepting and expressing feelings; stress and coping; anniversaries, and memorializing.
Healing Grief is free but participants need to complete an application in order to enroll. To request an application or for more information, call St. Mary’s Hospice at 706.389.2273 or, toll-free, 1.800.822.3381.
