How to Cope with Grief and Loss
Stages of Grief
Support Group Grass Valley


If you have experienced a significant emotional loss whether that loss is due to death or divorce, recent or past, this is an opportunity for you to meet with other grievers, both men and women, in a safe, caring and supportive environment. Our goal is to assist each other in the healing through grief process.

The next meeting of the Healing Through Loss and Grief group will begin January 11, 2018 at FREED Center, 2059 Nevada City Hwy Suite 104, Grass Valley, California from 6:00pm until 8:00pm. The first two meetings will be open to all newcomers. Then the group will close for those willing and able to continue the process for 12 additional weeks. This is not a therapy group. It is a structured program with weekly assignments designed to guide and support you through the grieving process and beyond loss. There is NO CHARGE for this group and no pre-registration is required. Just arrive at the first meeting at 6:00pm.

If you plan to attend, please purchase the book The 20th Anniversary Expanded Edition of the Grief Recovery Handbook by John James and Russell Friedman which is available in all local book stores or on
