Growing Through Your Grief: All Sudden Losses



All Sudden Losses

Grief is a natural response to the loss of someone or something very dear to us. Anyone can experience grief and loss, but each person is unique in how he or she copes with these feelings. It is important to have the support of other people, especially those with similar experiences such as suicide, substance loss, or accident, or sudden illness.
If you are a woman who has previously attended any of the EricsHouse “Understanding Your Grief”, we invite to join “Growing Though Your Grief” .
You will learn healthy coping skills to aid in your healing and integration of your loss. This group is for people who have accepted their loss and are ready to learn how to live forward in a way that allows happiness and joy once again.
