Careers at Calm Waters

Calm Waters, Oklahoma City’s only grief support center, is growing in response to the increased demand for mental health services for the entire family. The global COVID-19 pandemic has brought renewed attention to mental health needs as our society navigates the collective grief of life prior to March 2020.

The mission of Calm Waters is to help children and families on their grief journey caused by death, divorce and other significant loss. We help people through our FREE support groups for the whole family and student support groups in partnership with greater OKC metro area schools, private pay counseling and consultations with mental health clinicians, parenting seminars and workplace crisis services.
