SOMC announces “Surviving the Holidays” support group

The holidays can be difficult, especially for those mourning the loss of a family member. For those who are struggling to make it through the season, however, Southern Ohio Medical Center is there to help.

SOMC will be holding a series of “Surviving The Holidays” support group meetings designed to help take the anxiety out of the holidays following the death of a loved one.

“Through ‘Surviving the Holidays,’ we will be providing the help and support so many need during this time of year,” Bereavement Coordinator Susan Goins said. “Our meetings will include a light supper, as well as educational materials and discussions meant to help those who may be struggling with the death of a loved one.”

“Surviving The Holidays” is a five-week group that starts just before Thanksgiving and continues until after New Years. Meetings will last from 5pm until 7pm, and are scheduled for: November 26, December 3, December 10, December 17 and January 7. All meetings will take place in the Gibson Building Conference Room, located on SOMC’s East Campus.

Group space is limited, so those interested in attending will need to register. For more information, contact Susan Goins at 740-356-2676.
