Trellis Supportive Care Grief Counseling Services: additional Group & Workshop information

Support Groups for Adults

Support groups provide education about the grief process, help build healthy coping skills, and connect members with others grieving similar losses. Open to adults; a brief intake and registration paperwork are required before joining a group. Membership is closed after the first group meeting. Plan to attend all sessions of the 4-week series. The Coping with the Death of an Infant group is a 4-week support group for adults grieving the loss of a child following a birth through 1 year of age. The Child Loss Connect Group is a monthly support group for adults grieving the loss of a child of any age.  

Soul Expressions 

This experiential workshop offers opportunities to practice self-care. Led by our team of art and music therapists, this workshop encourages participants to explore creativity and mindfulness as essential supports for the grief process. Open to adults who are grieving the loss of a loved one.  

**In-Person Session Guidelines** 

In-person group sessions are currently mask-optional for participants and staff. We encourage group members to remain flexible, as guidelines for participation could change based upon Trellis Supportive Care requirements. If in-person meetings are not possible, the group will meet as scheduled via Zoom. Complete guidelines will be shared after registration. 

For additional support, we invite you to explore the Supportive Resources page on our website. This information includes grief education & printable handouts, self-care resources, and   ideas for supporting children & teens. 

Pre-registration for all groups & workshops is required. Call (336) 331-1300.
