Grief support group for young adults at Lemoyne Caring Place
The Highmark Caring Place is providing a grief support group for young adults. This six-week program for those grieving the death of a loved one is aimed at young adults between the ages of 18 and 30.
Group meetings will be held on Tuesday’s through June and July at the Highmark Caring Place facility in Lemoyne, PA.
About the program: The program addresses a gap in services for this age group, who often find it difficult to access support after a death. Although it can look untroubled and carefree, young adulthood can often be a very stressful time, as teens transition to their 20s, and as 20-somethings work to get established. The extra weight of grief added to an already challenging stage of life can make things doubly difficult.
For those relatively early in their careers, or between jobs, or students in college away from their families who aren’t able to attend typical support programs with the family, this young adult support group can provide significant help, even if the death occurred some years earlier.
Help to spread the word. If you are a young adult, or if you know someone in this age range who has experienced the death of someone they love, you are invited to learn more about this grief support group for young adults. Share the attachment as you see fit!
