For most people, holidays are happy, festive times of year. But, for those facing holidays after the loss of a loved one, they can be lonely and emotionally very difficult to handle.
Holidays or not, it is important to find a way to take care of yourself.
To help the South Jersey community cope with the loss of a loved one, The Samaritan Center for Grief Support is providing a virtual Coping With Holidays support group.
This online workshop is complimentary and facilitated by trained professionals.
Pre-registration for a virtual session is required by calling (856) 596-8550 or e-mailing at CFGcounseling@SamaritanNJ.org.
