Wilmington NC Bereavement Support Group: One of the best things about attending a bereavement support group is the reminder that you are not alone. Grieving can seem very lonely and isolating, especially when no one else around you seems to be grieving. While no two people grieve exactly the same way, by participating in a support group you may find that other people have experiences, feelings, and struggles that are like the same. yours. When you feel totally alone and misunderstood by the world, the community of support groups can offer you a haven of understanding. Meetings are for anyone grappling with grief of any kind – family, friends, pets, work, housing, marriage, children, illness and finances. Visit https://www.facebook.com/groups/5957214678285944.
