Where can I go to find places in Memphis that offer free grief counseling?
I lost my mom back in September and I talked about getting a grief counselor but I never did I just through myself into work and tried to keep my mind off it. Now with Mother's Day coming up and September approaching FAST I'm starting to think I need one now after all :-(
Sho B offered some great resources for you.
A quick internet search shows that a church in the Memphis area offered a six-week group that ended in April, but if you call, they probably know where there are other groups in your area. Church of the Holy Spirit 901-757-9140 Also listed was St. Louis Catholic Church at 901-682-6606 You don't have to have any affiliation with these churches to attend. It also looks like there are ongoing groups at Baptist Memorial Hospital Healthcare 901-767-6767.
Counselors and support group facilitators usually know each other professionally and can offer you other choices. You may also want to call local funeral homes; they sometimes have lists or know of local grief support groups.
Mothers are special people and good memories of them are a blessing.
