BENNINGTON – VNA & Hospice of SVHC offers free adult grief support meetings in Bennington with local, licensed bereavement counselor and art therapist Beth Newman. Adults who are grieving the loss of a loved one can join the group on Wednesdays at 6 p.m. at the Second Congregational Church on Hillside St.
Grief after a loss is a normal reaction that takes patience and energy to successfully endure. Going through the grieving process is a different experience for everyone. Grief affects each of us in various ways and at different times. Come together with others who are grieving to share your experience, learn about the stages of grief, and discover new ways to cope with the often-difficult emotions of bereavement.
All adult community members are welcome. Children and teen grief support is also available from the VNA & Hospice of SVHC. Call Mary Pleasant, bereavement coordinator, at (802) 442-5502 to find out more.
