Baystate Health's bereavement support program provides weekly support groups that offer a balance of supportive sharing in a group setting and informational sessions on grief and bereavement.
- The meetings on the first & second Thursday of each month are dedicated to open discussion and sharing of experiences and feelings.
- The meetings on the third & fourth Thursday of each month focus on a particular topic. Usually the presentation
of a professional will be followed by a discussion.
