Dr. Eileen Callahan, Ph.D.: Why Attend a Support Group

Why Attend a Grief Support Group?

  • Telling your story will help you express your feelings, some you might not even know you are experiencing.
  • Support groups offer a safe, confidential, judgment free environment to be with your grief.
  • Resources, ideas and suggestions can be gleaned from others.

Plan on attending at least three support groups before you decide if it is right for you. The first few sessions can be difficult. Keep trying and if eventually you find support and strength from others, great. One day, you may be the one offering tips and a listening ear. This camaraderie will help you make meaning from your loss.
