Grief is real. Grief is BIG.
Grief is better shared.

The Baptist Centers for Good Grief provide therapeutic and supportive services to those who have experienced a loss by death.  We offer safe environments for grieving children, teens and adults to explore and express their feelings after the death of a loved one and to learn to thrive in a world without that special person.  Our work is funded entirely by generous donations and grants so that these services are available free of charge to anyone in the community.

Grief is a normal expression of love after a loved one dies.

Everyone grieves — children, teens and adults — but we all grieve differently. Grief is normal, but it often feels very abnormal. Grief is an expression of love, and the only cure for grief is to allow yourself to grieve.

Grief is better shared,

and you do not have to grieve alone.

It’s important to understand grief and how grief impacts us.

Grief involves the entire body. We grieve in five ways — physically, mentally, behaviorally, emotionally and spiritually.

Grief causes us to experience other losses as well. We lose part of ourselves — our security and our hope for the future. Share your grief – you don’t have to grieve alone.
