Hickory – For many who have lost a child, the feelings of overwhelming sadness are made more intense by feelings of isolation, realizing that those around us have not, and probably will not, share this experience.

Carolina Caring is offering an online support group entitled Grief in Balance: Loss of a Child to help guide you along your natural grief journey. The group is offered on Tuesday, July 28 and Tuesday, August 25 from 1pm – 2pm or August 11 from 7pm – 8pm and is led by counselors who have also lost a child.

Registration is required for this Zoom group and instructions for participating will be provided. Please call 828.466.0466 ext. 3201 to sign up or send an email to wspurling@carolinacaring.org.
