VITAS Bereavement Support Groups

Support groups can help you identify the normal signs and symptoms of grief, increase your understanding of the grieving process, develop helpful coping strategies, gain strength and insight from shared experiences of group members and develop a supportive network. In our groups, we honor confidentiality and we are respectful of all persons. We strive to create a warm, safe and comfortable environment.

Please extend this invitation to other family members or grieving friends. All VITAS groups are free of charge and open to the community; no registration necessary.
