Weekly Virtual Grief Support Group – Christin Hunnicutt, MSW, HRC’s Grief Services Coordinator, hosts a weekly online support group on Wednesday nights from 7:00p – 8:00p. For more information, please click here, or you may reach Christin at email@example.com or (336) 427-9022.
Want to Understand Your Grief? Video Library – our online video library explores many topics, including “what is grief?”; “hope for coping”; “care for your whole self”; and “being in and moving through mourning”
What’s Your Grief? This site “promotes grief education, exploration, and expression in both practical and creative ways.” (NOTE: While on-line grief support resources are utilized by many and can be helpful, please take a moment to read this brief but helpful cautionary article/blog post by the authors of the What’s Your Grief website. This article was published in the ADEC Connects newsletter)
“How To Get Through The Grief and Get On With Your Life” is an excerpt from an advice column that offers helpful information about grief.
Hope for the Holidays for Kids & Families – Join HRC’s grief support staff on November 4th for a very special Hope for the Holidays focused on children and families. Held at Nickerson Farms in Reidsville, this promises to be a great day of information and sharing. For more information, visit our calendar event.
