From Mourning to Joy

GriefShare is a support group offered by Cochrane Alliance to those who have experienced loss of a loved one. May joined our GriefShare group in September 2020, after losing her husband, Doug. GriefShare helped May to work through the issues of loss and grief as she faced life alone.

May found that GriefShare gave her the opportunity to learn how to move from mourning to joy. The video sessions, group discussion with other participants and her weekly homework guide gave her hope, comfort, and the courage to embrace her grief instead of avoiding it. She plans to attend our next session of GriefShare this fall to continue her journey of “starting over again as a widow”. She has already recommended GriefShare to several of her friends who have also experienced loss in recent days.
