Grief Support Groups

Grief Support for the Whole Family

Every other Monday, January to May 2023 from 6:30 to 7:30 PM
A/B Schedule
Group C - Every other Monday 3:00 to 4:00 PM

Calm Waters Grief Support Groups are for adults, teens, and children, ages 3 to 18. Those interested may join a support group at any time and attend as long as needed.

Child groups are grouped by developmental age, and adults are divided by their relationship to the deceased loved one or the type of loss. Consistent attendance is most beneficial for the group member. We require pre-registration and a group check-in process to keep group sizes small. Grief Support Group is a free service, and groups are facilitated by trained volunteer facilitators. 

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 (Ext. 109).

How to join our support groups:

  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.
This an important reminder to contact us if you cannot attend so we can allow another participant to join and reserve your spot for each group session!
