Grief Peer Support Groups


What Are Grief Peer Support Groups?

Imagine provides peer grief group support to children and families experiencing the death of an immediate family member, whether it’s a parent or a sibling.

Imagine believes in the peer group support model to help families mourn through their loss with other families to help show them they are not alone.

Types Of Grief Peer Support Groups

In-Person Support

Imagine provides in-person peer grief supports at our Mountainside and Newark locations.

For one family, in-person peer grief support groups are held every other week for one year.

For all interested families to attend a one hour orientation with Imagine’s Clinical Team to determine the needs of the family.

From there, families are assigned to a Night of Support where children and adults go into separate age-appropriate groups to receive support.

Virtual Grief Peer Support

Since March 2020, Imagine has been providing virtual grief group support to children and adults.

Virtual support is held on Zoom and is available for any family who would prefer to join in from any location while practicing social distancing. We provide break-out rooms for intimate discussions, nightly activities for children of all ages, and virtual facilitators and clinical staff to provide a digital safe, brave space for anyone coping with loss.

Is Imagine Right For You?

Imagine is not therapy or counseling. It is a peer support program that depends on the connections and sharing of group participants to assist individuals in mourning their loss.

Imagine exists to provide a safe space and place for children and adults to mourn their loss, develop healthy coping skills, and integrate the loss into their lives.
