Monthly Grief Support Group Bloomington
2nd Tuesday Support
6:30 p.m.-8:00 p.m

Oxboro Clinic in Bloomington, 600 W. 98th St., Bloomington, MN

Join us on the second Tuesday of each month to explore resources and grief education related to the death of your loved one. We meet at the Fairview Oxboro Clinic. No need to register,  just come for support. Upcoming Topics:
  • May 12: Remembering Our Parents.  A special time to honor and remember parents who have died. All are invited, even if your parents were not in the Fairview system. Bring pictures to share.
  • June 14: Grief 101. Grief is a natural human experience that every person encounters at some time in their lives. New research on bereavement tells us that we are "wired" for healing and that grief need not overwhelm us. If this is true, why does grief hurt so much? Come and learn about the normal experience of grief, how healing happens, and where to find hope in the process. No registration needed--just come for support! Call 952-885-6183 with questions, or if there is bad weather, for a program update.
