Grief Support Groups

Calm Waters offers free grief support groups for ages 3 years-old to adult. Grief support groups meet once a week on Monday evenings from 6:30-7:30 pm. Family members are divided into age appropriate groups including children groups, teen groups, young adult and adult groups.
All family members may attend or a single adult; minors cannot attend groups without a guardian present. Group curriculum is 12 weeks (with the May intersession group only having 8 weeks).

Consistent, weekly attendance is most beneficial for the family. If after completing a 12 week grief group, families may sign up for the next group and attend as long as they feel the need.

Groups have three start dates per year: January, April, and September.  To register for a support group, complete and return the Grief Group Registration Form found here.  Once your registration form is received, a Calm Waters’ staff member will contact you to schedule an intake appointment prior to the beginning of groups.
