Grief doesn’t take the summer off. Summer grief support programs at Mountain View Funeral Home in Lakewood offer education and help for those who have lost a loved one. Often people feel an increase in feelings of loss a few months after the death. Finding help when they need it can be a problem.
Mountain View’s popular Grief Recovery Method® Program provides 7 sessions based on the Grief Recovery Handbook by John James and Russell Friedman. A Grief Recovery Method Group will begin on Tuesday, June 18, noon to 2:00 pm. Registration is required.
Ongoing groups meet twice a month throughout the year. A group for people who have lost a spouse or life partner meets first and third Wednesdays, 6:30 to 8:00 pm. For people dealing with the loss of any loved one, a group meets second and fourth Thursdays, 6:30 – 8:00 pm. Registration is not required.
All of Mountain View’s groups are open to anyone in the community and are free of charge.
