Grief and Loss Support

Suffering the death of a loved one may be one of the most disorienting and difficult experiences we face. The struggle with grief can be lonely and we’d like to help. North Memorial offers seminars and support groups for those who are grieving the loss of a loved one. There is no cost to participate, but registration is required. Most groups meet at our Terrace Mall office, near the North Memorial Outpatient Center. Our address is 3500 France Ave. N. Suite 102/103 in Robbinsdale, MN.
