Facilitated by Dr. Rebecca Fleischer and Dr. Libby Robbins
This monthly support group is for anyone who has recently – or not-so-recently – lost a spouse or partner. Join us for an open, frank forum on issues such as grief, bereavement, and moving forward after great loss. Members of the group have been known to socialize outside of the monthly meeting on Zoom calls and outdoor events, weather permitting. All are welcome.
Fee: No admission fee, but registration is required.
