Grief Matters is a monthly education series designed to provide opportunities to explore and manage grief in new ways.

Recognizing that the experience of grief is both unique and universal, Grief Matters offers additional support for those striving to learn, grow, connect, and heal. Each month, a topic or activity is presented that may help improve wellness and coping through education, self-care, and emotional expression. Participants are encouraged to try new skills and incorporate them into their lives if appropriate for their personal grief journey. Please join us on the last Wednesday of each month for a different topic or activity… because your grief matters!

Inside/Outside Masks of Grief

What is happening internally and what we present externally throughout the grieving process can be vastly different. This can occur for a variety of reasons and impact each one of us in unique ways. Exploring these differences utilizing metaphor and the art process can create opportunities for participants to better understand, find meaning, and recognize potential points of change as they continue to move through their grief. Join us for an evening of therapeutic art where attendees will participate in an activity and take their completed work home at the end of the event. No artistic skills are required and all supplies will be provided.
