Beyond Loss Grief Support Program


At Adventist Health, we understand there are no easy answers to the experience of loss and grief. Nothing, not even time, can make the pain completely disappear.

Adventist Health's Beyond Loss Grief Support Program is dedicated to helping you find your courage during challenging times. Through a network of support groups, grief counseling and healing activities, our goal is to help guide you through the often-confusing twists and turns of emotions during losses, such as death, divorce, health diagnoses and more.

Beyond Loss offers a variety on-going support groups every week that provide emotional support to those experiencing loss. Highly trained facilitators provide a place of emotional and physical safety for the grieving, while fellow members provide additional support.
