To help parents cope with the grief of losing a child, the Center for Hope has started a new support group.
Led by Center for Hope clinician Carole Greenberg, RN, MS, LMFT, the group helps parents who have recently lost a child overcome feelings of isolation and provides a safe and supportive environment.
It also allows parents to talk abut the things that they cannot discuss with others -- from their anger, sadness and guilt to how to handle special occasions.
The group begins on April 30 and will meet every Monday at 5:45 p.m. for 10 weeks. The sessions will take place at the Center for Hope at 590 Post Road in Darien.
An initial consultation is required before joining the group.
For more information or to set up an initial consultation, call the Center for Hope at 203-655-4693.
For more than 25 years, the Center for HOPE has provided comprehensive services for adults and children living with an illness or grieving a loss.
