Adult Grief Support Groups

Due to the COVID-19 Outbreak, all in person and group counseling sessions are suspended until further notice.  Support from a Grief Counselor is still available by phone by calling 719-884-6530.  Leave a message and a Counselor will call you back. 

You don't have to go through this alone.

Family Hugs

No one knows exactly what you're feeling, and no one can make your grief go away. It belongs to you alone. But that doesn't mean you have to go through it alone. You've likely heard there are normal stages of grieving, and that's true. For many, it helps to walk through those stages with an experienced guide, or others dealing with loss, or resources to light the way.

Grief Support Groups

Grief support groups are led by professional grief counselors and volunteers. Formats include structured groups that may meet weekly or monthly, as well as informal gatherings. Current grief support groups include:

  • "Grief Journey" Adult Support Group – A six-week group, facilitated by a counselor, is offered six times each year.
  • Women's Group – Social in nature, meets monthly for a potluck.
  • Men's Group – An informal men's only get together, led by a volunteer.
Individual Grief Counseling

Short-term supportive and educational grief counseling is available for family and friends who have lost a loved one in our program. In-office appointments are available by calling 719-633-3400. Ask to speak with a Grief Counselor.

Thank you. ~ Patient's daughter
