Death due to a sudden or traumatic event can raise a number of complex issues for the survivors. The grief process is often very different from an expected or anticipated death. Bereavement is often intensified, since there is little to no opportunity to prepare for the loss, say good-bye, or address unfinished business.
ACTS Traumatic Death Survivor support group is a free, confidential, non-judgmental peer led support group, whose goal is to provide a safe environment for those who have experienced a traumatic loss. It is an opportunity for participants to give and receive support with others who have experienced the traumatic death of a loved one.
Anyone who has lost a friend, family member, or significant other in a traumatic death situation is invited to attend the bi-monthly meetings.
