Grief and Loss Support

It's been said that "every loss is different and every loss is the same." Though your loss is truly unique, the grief process you face probably shares some similarities with the grief process others experience in their losses. Where there are similarities, sometimes there are tried and true coping skills we can learn and solace in knowing we aren't alone.

North Memorial offers seminars and support groups for those who are struggling with the loss of a loved one. There is no cost to participate, but registration is required. Guests are welcome. Most groups meet at our Terrace Mall office, near the North Memorial Outpatient Center. Our address is 3500 France Ave. N. Suite 101 in Robbinsdale, MN.

  • A trauma or tragedy occurred.
  • You are alone or isolated.
  • You have a history of depression or other mental health issues.
