The benefits of taking part in a support group go beyond sharing your feelings in a safe environment. They offer helpful information and success stories for coping with loss. It can be a very therapeutic and healing experience, and helps the bereaved feel understood and less isolated. A bonus is that they meet others just like themselves, which can lead to lifelong friendships.
Support groups can be an important part of coping with loss, but many funeral homes don’t have the time or resources to host them.
