Everyone grieves differently; for some it is a very private process, others have networks of friends and family that meet their needs. Some people benefit from participating in Individual support, or in a Group with others who are grieving.  Attending Memorial Services and Workshops can also be a way to honor your loved one as you begin your healing journey.

Pathways has an array of bereavement services to help people as they navigate this new territory without their loved one.
