Holidays can be especially painful after the death of a loved one. Family and friends who have suffered a loss are invited to join a special one-hour holiday bereavement support group Nov. 17.

Called ”Get Me Through the Holidays,” the group will meet at two different times for participants’ convenience: 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. or 6 to 7 p.m. in Providence Seaside Hospital, Education Center A,725 S. Wahanna Road.

The group will offer strategies for those who are grieving and discover practical and meaningful ways to cope during the holidays, a time that can often intensify the feelings of loneliness and isolation.

The one-hour sessions are facilitated by Mary Trudell, BCC, MTS. There is no charge for the sessions, but preregistration is required due to limited space.

For more information, contact Trudell, director of mission integration and spiritual care, at 503-717-7607 or mary.trudell@providence.or
