Support Groups, Workshops & Registration

Due to regulations because of  COVID-19, Gilchrist is suspending all in-person grief support groups and workshops until further notice. We are beginning to offer virtual groups and events. 

About Our Support Groups

Gilchrist’s support groups encourage mutual support and understanding by providing an environment where participants can discuss topics related to grief, explore their feelings and learn coping strategies.

While in-person programs are on hold, Gilchrist is offering several monthly and six-week support groups. Our one-time workshops such as Grief’s Journey, Breathing Through Grief and occasional pop-up workshops are on hold until further notice. Additionally, remembrance and special events are being looked at to determine if a “virtual event” is a viable option to ensure that, for those who have lost a loved one, a virtual gathering will be a meaningful way to come together and honor and remember the special people who have touched our lives.

If Your Loss Is Recent

If your loss is recent, please contact one of our grief counselors for guidance and recommendations. Please email: gilchrist_grief@gilchristcares.org or call our grief coordinator at 443.849.8251.
