SOMC To Offer Fall Grief Support Group

 Southern Ohio Medical Center’s Hospice Bereavement Program will offer a grief support group called “Picking Up the Pieces.” The group will meet from 5 to 7 p.m. September 6 in the Hospice conference room, located in the SOMC Gibson building, 2201 25th Street in Portsmouth.

“Adjusting after the death of a loved one is difficult,” Susan Goins, bereavement coordinator for SOMC Hospice, said. “If you are struggling with the grieving process, we invite you to join us for an educational support group.”

“Picking Up the Pieces” is a six-weeklong course that will give participants an opportunity to share memories, ask questions and voice concerns with others who have suffered loss. The meetings last two hours and will end October 11, 2011.

The group is free and open to the public. Registration is necessary. For more information or to register, please call Susan Goins at (740) 356-2676 or 1-800-779-7902.
