grief-group

Support groups provide a safe place to explore and express your grief in a comfortable setting and connect with others who have experienced loss.

We offer daytime and evening grief support. All of our groups are led by our professional grief counselors and trained volunteers. Review our Ongoing Support Groups PDF or search for support groups by location below.

Online Support Groups

Due to the current social distancing restrictions and commitment to protecting our group members, the following support groups will be offered in an online format until we can determine that it is safe to gather in person.

For more information or to register for any of these groups, contact Halcyon at Colorado VNA Grief Support at 720-325-2987 or griefsupport@vnacolorado.org.

Creative Expressions of Grief Series

Post It Quilt – One of the most helpful things in grief is being with others who “get it.” What messages have you received that have been encouraging or inspirational for you? What has helped you and strength when you were feeling down, guilty, angry, sad? During this expressive arts activity, we’ll create a “post it quilt” of group support and ways to help you journey through the roller coaster of grief.

Monday, October 18, 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

Create Your Vision – A frequent challenge for grieving people is determining their purpose and identity following a death loss. During this expressive arts activity, you will have the opportunity to begin to envision your hopes and dreams for yourself through the creation of a vision board.

Finding Peace, One Piece at a Time

What to do with your and a loved one’s personal possessions

Personal possessions tell a beautiful story of a person’s life regardless of age.
But when we and that we have accumulated too much or a loved one passes,
the process of sorting through the items can be overwhelming.

Rachel will provide us with tools for how to thin, repurpose, and redistribute
these possessions while capturing and cherishing these memories of our loved one.

Presentation by author Rachel Kodanaz
