Compass’ Grief Services team will be hosting a variety of different support groups and workshops coming up. One of the critical factors in healing is the support of other people. Having a community of others who have also experiences grief allow you to feel someone else “gets it”. With each group and workshop below our grief support group will give you the tools for handling grief, plus the support of others with similar losses.
Bereaved Parents Group: Join our monthly drop-in group (first Monday of the month) for individuals (18 and older), who have experienced the loss of a child at any age, regardless of the circumstances. It is located at the Hope & Healing Center (Barnette Center). This support group is a safe place for parents to understand that they are not alone in their grief and to appreciate that everyone grieves differently. For more information, contact Rhonda Knotts at 443-262-4109 or email@example.com.
Caregiver Support Group: Family caregivers take on so much-from cooking and cleaning to managing medications, looking after finances, and coordinating doctor appointments. It is a monthly drop-in group on the second Thursday of each month 1:00-2:30pm. It will be hosted at the Hope & Healing Center (Barnette Center) (255 Comet Dr. Centreville, MD 21617). This is a place where spouses and adult children can share their sorrows and problems, joys and successes, resources and solutions. Please reach out to Rhonda Knotts 443-262-4109 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Stigmatized Loss: Join our monthly drop-in group (last Tuesday of the month 6:00-7:30pm) for individuals (18 and older). A critical aspect in healing is sharing and connection. The goal of this monthly drop-in is to provide a safe, supportive space for individuals who have lost a loved one to overdose or suicide. We hope you can join us. It is located at the Hope & Healing Center (Barnette Center) (255 Comet Dr. Centreville, MD 21617). For more information, contact Sherrie Young 443-262-4120 or email@example.com.
Men’s Coffee Hour: Join our monthly drop-in group staring March 14th (second Tuesday of the month 9:00-10:00am).
- Imagine a social outlet for men
- Imagine a place where everyone’s intent is to hear what to say
- Imagine a place where you are encouraged to move forward through life’s challenges and towards your aspirations and goals
It’s free. It’s confidential. It’s facilitated. Take a step and discover what other men are doing to navigate through life’s challenges. The group will be meeting at the Hope & Healing Center (Barnette Center) (255 Comet Dr. Centreville, MD 21617).
