Grief Support Groups

Grief Support for the Whole Family

Every other Monday, August to December 2022 from 6:30 to 7:30 PM
A/B Schedule

Calm Waters Grief Support Groups are ongoing. Families, children, ages 3 to 18, and individuals, may join a support group at any time and attend as long as needed.

Families will attend the same night. Children are grouped by developmental age, and adults are divided by their relationship to the deceased loved one. The Fall Series Groups are: Significant Relationship/Loved One Loss, Partner Loss, Child Loss, Miscarriage/Infertility/Infant Loss, and Suicide Loss. Consistent attendance is most beneficial for the family. Families are expected to call in advance if they need to miss a group session.

Once your online registration form has been submitted, a Calm Waters’ staff member will contact you via email prior to joining a group to provide information about the group or schedule an in-person orientation. For more information about any of Calm Waters’ Support Groups, please contact Hannah Showalter, LMSW, Program Director, at Hannah@calmwaters.org or call the office at 405-841-4800.

How to Reserve Your Spot for Each Group Session:

  1.  Complete the survey online. Calm Water’s Program Director pulls new registrations weekly and sends a welcome email after the registration is reviewed.
  2.  Before the group, you will receive an email with a link to reserve a place for you and your family members via SignUp Genius. Directions are attached in the email but please contact us if you need assistance.
  3.  Click the link and reserve a spot for yourself in the group title related to your loss.
  4.  If bringing your child to the group, please place them in their age group (please include names for each spot so we know who to expect).
  5. If you would like to attend virtually, please reserve a spot under “Virtual Adult.”
  6. If you reserve a spot and you cannot attend, please let me know so we can open the spot up to another group member.
  7. If you go to reserve a spot and there are none available, please reach out to us to see what we can do.
