    What is GriefShare?

    At GriefShare you’ll receive valuable guidance and tips, leading you to relief, comfort, and peace of mind.

    A support group to help you move through the grief process

    A GriefShare support group is a safe, welcoming place where people understand the difficult emotions of grief. Through this 13-week group, you’ll discover what to expect in the days ahead and what’s “normal” in grief. Since there are no neat, orderly stages of grief, you’ll learn helpful ways of coping with grief, in all its unpredictability—and gain solid support each step of the way.

  • FAQ

    • What happens during a typical group meeting?

      Each week you’ll view a 30-minute video on a grief-related topic, featuring valuable insights from counselors, pastors, and others who’ve lost a loved one. Then your group will discuss the video and how it applies to your lives. You’ll also receive a book with helpful tips and exercises for personal support throughout the week.

    • How does GriefShare compare with other grief support options?

      While other grief support sites may offer phone or video consultations with a professional, we have found a group support setting to be crucial for healing. One-on-one counsel is certainly helpful, but a more complete healing is found in the context of having people walk alongside you on the grief journey.

    • How much does it cost to attend?

      For most groups the cost ranges from free to around $20 to cover the cost of your participant guide. Contact the church that is hosting a group near you (or online) to find out.

    • Is GriefShare for people with a specific type of loss?

      GriefShare is for everyone who is grieving the death of a loved one—whether you’ve experienced the loss of a spouse, parent, child (infant, young child, teen, adult, unborn), friend, sibling, coworker, or other relative.

    • I’m not religious. Should I come?

      Even though GriefShare is based on Christian principles, people from all faiths and even those who are not religious have found hope and healing by attending. The practical advice from counselors, pastors, and healthcare professionals applies to anyone.

    • What if I’m not comfortable sharing?

      That’s perfectly fine! No one is required to talk or share. People usually find that it helps to express their concerns, ask questions, and share their stories, but you are welcome to come and simply listen to others’ experiences and the expert advice from the videos.

    • What if I’m nervous about being with people I don’t know?

      Your feelings are understandable, but those feelings go away quickly for most people, usually during the first session they attend. People at GriefShare are there because they, too, are looking for help and support in a caring, safe place.

    • What are the group facilitators like?

      GriefShare facilitators understand what it’s like to grieve. They want to help you take healthy steps in the right direction and avoid pitfalls. They have a heart to come alongside hurting people and will foster a supportive environment during your time together.
