There are a variety of types of support groups to help you navigate your unique grief journey.
Peer-Led Support Groups
Peer-led support groups (either in-person or online) are typically led by people who have experienced a loss themselves. These groups are a great way to connect with other people who have been through a similar experience.
*Remember, when a loss is new, it may be difficult to hear details about another person’s experience and pain. Before attending a peer-led support group, make sure you are ready to hear about other’s experiences.*

Professionally-Led Support Groups
Professionally-led support groups are typically either therapeutic or educational in nature and are often run by a trained mental health professional or grief expert. This person will help to facilitate the discussion, provide education, and moderate the group.
