Calm Waters Launches New “Coping with COVID” Support Group
Weekly Virtual Support Group Begins April 29
Oklahoma City, OK – Calm Waters Center for Children and Families, the only grief center in Central Oklahoma offering free grief support services to children and families, introduces a NEW support group, specifically serving adults experiencing depression, anxiety, and grief due to COVID-19. The weekly support group will be hosted from 12 – 1 p.m. beginning Wednesday, April 29 through June 10 and will be conducted virtually. This support group is free and open to the first 100 people who register online.
“Life, as our community has known, has changed and for many, the losses associated with that change – from not celebrating a child’s birthday, getting to graduate, losing a loved one without honoring their life with a funeral, or simply not being around friends and family – are all forms of grief,” said Erin Engelke, executive director for Calm Waters. “At Calm Waters, we know how isolating grief is but also know how being part of a community can eradicate feelings of loneliness and provide healing.”
