Support Group Helps People Recover After the Loss of Loved Ones

(Monroe, WI)- The journey through grief is difficult. Many people find it comforting to face grief with others who are experiencing similar challenges.

For this reason, Monroe Clinic Hospice is holding a six-week HEAL (Hope Eternal After Loss) grief education and support group, which provides support for people who are grieving the death of a loved one.

This six-week HEAL group will begin on Wednesday, February 11 and will continue every Wednesday evening through March 18. The weekly meetings will be held at the St. Camillus Center, located at 2101 6th Street in Monroe, WI from 6-7:30 p.m. The program is free and open to the public.

The HEAL support group is open to adults over 18 who have experienced the death of someone special. Learn about the grieving process and ideas for coping and healing in a safe and supportive setting. Discussion topics include:

  • The importance of information and support as we grieve
  • Understanding grief as a process
  • Identifying and accepting normal feelings when grieving
  • Past and present losses
  • Factors which complicate grief
