Griffin Hospital is starting new support groups in January for anyone experiencing the loss of a loved one.

These groups provide grief education and support to ease the pain of loss as well as encourage healing and growth. The groups meet in an eight-week cycle at the hospital, 130 Division St., Derby.

There will be groups meeting on Wednesdays from 6:30-8 p.m., starting Jan. 6, and Tuesdays from 2:30-4 p.m., starting Jan. 26.

Due to limited capacity, pre-registration is required. To learn more or to register, contact Heather Billingham at 203-732-1132 or hbillingham@griffinhealth.org.
