Our Circle Of Understanding
Friendly Support Group Meetings
Open & Private
No need to register with the Life’s Worth Living to attend. It is open to the public and privacy is deeply respected. Our warm and friendly support group meetings are open to anyone who is struggling. It is a great time to express our feelings.
Anyone needing support – especially who has lost a family member, friend or are contemplating suicide are invited to attend. We are invited to come together to share our reason for attending, to share our feelings, or to just simply listen.
Occasionally, we invite special guests from all walks of life to help us share and explore our experiences. Click “Find A Time” to see dates, times and locations for our upcoming support group meetings and other support activities.

After the loss of a loved one, you may become overwhelmed by the natural reactions of grief that you experience. In time, you’ll learn how to appropriately respond to the emotions and negative ways of thinking. By doing so, you’ll start to draw comfort and strength rather than pain and bitterness from the emotions.
In a sense, you are never “finished grieving.” There will always come moments that trigger your grief and you will reflect again on how much you miss them.
Feeling the sorrow is an individual process, there’s no right way to do it. Life won’t ever be the same after, but choosing to experience the heartache and choosing to view the reality of your loss will allow you to adjust that much better afterwards.
