A Mother Shares

Our mom's group (for mom's who have had a child die) meet Mondays - 11-12:30. The following was shared today by one of the moms: BJ's flowers teach lessons on loss, grief, healing and love | When a friend took the flowers off the table decorations after a funeral and planted them in her yard, she began a lovely tradition of bringing a bouquet of those pretty yellow flowers each year to the family who lost their 16-year-old son to cancer. For more information on our mom's group, call Becky Andrews, LPC, FT at 801.259.3883.

Wolfelt, Ph.D. Teenagers Mourn Too Each year thousands of teenagers experience the death of someone they love. When a parent, sibling, friend or relative dies, teens feel the overwhelming loss of a someone who helped shape their self-identities. And these feelings about the death become a part of their lives forever. Caring adults, whether parents, teachers, counselor or friends, can help teens during this time. If adults are open, honest and loving, experiencing the loss of someone can be a change for young people to learn about both the joy and pain that comes from caring deeply for others.

Support for those who have had a loved one die from Suicide

Our next group will begin Tuesday, October 9th, 5:30- 6:45 at Resilient Solutions, Inc. 1355 N. Main, Ste. 1, Bountiful, Utah. For details call Melanie Holt, at 801.718.9840. ($95 for 6-week group session). A former group member shares her experience: When my entire world was turned upside down after my husband died from suicide, I only had a handful of people or things I could count on. This group became one of my most reliable and stady constants in the world of turmoil I was living in. The ideas and thoughts presented helped me work through the emotions that were swirling around in my confused head. It helped me realize that I was not crazy and that it was ok for me to feel the way that I did. I felt safe to grieve. Overall, I would not have progressed as far as I have on the path if it wasn't for the support of this group.
