Experiencing grief can be an overwhelming experience and is often confusing and frightening.

Although bereavement can be quite painful, it is not a sickness or abnormal condition. It is not something to be “cured” or “fixed.” Rather, it is part of the natural human response to losing someone close to us—the cost of loving and being loved.

The Faculty and Staff Assistance Program (FSAP) has organized a grief support group for those who are recently bereaved or are just beginning the grief process. Interested participants will meet once a week in a group setting starting Tuesday, May 30.

Sessions will provide information about grief, support for members to determine their own needs and coping skills as well as time to share experiences with the group. Handouts will provide additional information that participants can share with others.

Licensed staff counselor Connie North, PhD, MS LMFT, will facilitate the group process, providing information and understanding in a safe, supportive and accepting environment.

Interested participants must register for all eight sessions in advance. Please email for more information or to sign up.
