Grief Support

A return to a sense of peace. To smile when you recall the memory of a loved one. Hope.

All of these things are possible, even though they may see unimaginable given what you’re feeling now. Shock, anger, disbelief, guilt sadness, and despair are all normal emotions that you may experience following the death of a loved one.

Trustbridge

At Trustbridge, you can draw on the education and experience that our professional caring staff has gained from helping others through their healing journey.

Most importantly, let us assure you that you are not alone. We are here for you.

We offer you a bereavement specialist to talk to and groups to connect you with others experiencing similar emotions. Our bereavement team is here to help you realize that grief is a normal part of life and a natural continuation of your love for the one who died. You have taken the first important step; you are here.

Like learning, everyone has a way which works best for them. Whether you are most comfortable on a self-guided journey of contemplative reading, an educational workshop, or a virtual group, we are here for you. All of our services are provided free of charge, so it is easy to get started on your healing journey.

It is the priority of Trustbridge to safeguard the health and well-being of our patients and families at all times. We have temporarily suspended all in person bereavement counseling and are offering virtual and telephonic support at this time.

Grief Services for Adults

  • Beginning the Journey
    • The early days of the grieving process can be particularly difficult. A wide variety of emotions overtake one’s life as the process of coping with the death begins. We invite you to our Beginning the Journey workshop which provides an overview of grief and offers strategies to help you during the early weeks.
  • Open Support Groups
    • Open support groups provide an opportunity for adults to come together and share their struggles on various grief related topics. Most individuals will find it helpful to wait 4-6 weeks following the death of a loved one before attending a support group.
  • Loss-specific Support Groups
    • Our loss-specific support groups are designed to help individuals share their grief and connect with others who have experienced similar deaths. Each individual will speak with a bereavement specialist before joining any group. Please call 888.499.8393 to speak with a bereavement specialist about joining a loss-specific group.
  • Individual and Family Grief Counseling (for Trustbridge families whose loved ones have died in our care)
  • Grief Workshops 
    • Our workshops are created and facilitated by our bereavement specialists and cover a variety of topics.

Grief Services for Children

Our Sea Star Children’s Program provides services to meet the unique needs of children and teens who have experienced the death of a loved one. We provide grief support focused on promoting resiliency, hope, courage, and self-esteem.

  • Individual, Family, and Group Counseling
    • Our children’s bereavement specialists work with children and families to provide an individualized counseling experience to meet each child’s unique needs.
  • School-Based Support
    • We offer grief support groups at our community’s public and private schools. In-school grief counseling promotes recognition of the child’s feelings, increases peer support groups, and connects skills learned in the group with the school environment.
  • Grief Camps
    • Our campers have one thing in common – they all know what it is like to lose someone very special. Virtual technology allows our campers to come together in a safe environment to identify ways to cope with change, improve self-esteem, learn to recognize and validate feelings, identify safe ways to express grief, and recognize that having fun is still a part of life.
  • Family Fun Events
    • Our family fun events provide opportunities for families to know they are not alone in their grief. These events are designed to unite grieving families in activities that promote family togetherness and fun.
  • Workshops
    • Our workshops offer children a creative way to express their emotions. We also offer a quarterly workshop for caregivers of children who have experienced the death of a loved one.
