New grief support group offered

The first in a series of eight grief support group meetings will be held on July 28 from 10 a.m. to noon.

LouEllen Blake, bereavement coordinator at West Virginia Hospice, said the goals of this support group are to provide educational information about grief and loss, to assist group members in developing coping and adapting skills and to offer emotional support. The support group sessions will be offered at no charge.

Topics to be covered in the eight weekly sessions include: Understanding the grief experience, handling the difficult emotions of grief, managing the stress of change, preparing for holidays and special occasions, and finding meaning after loss.

Space is limited and prior registration is required. For more information about joining a grief support group, please contact Blake at 304-473-6800
