Grief Support

At Bayside we are here to help you heal when someone loved dies. Please see the resources below.


Thursdays | November 4 – December 9, 2021
6:30 – 8:00 PM
Bayside Folsom Campus | Building 870 Room 106

For anyone who is going through, helping someone go through, or just wants to learn more about the grieving process. Grief is something we all go through and is not just defined by loss of life. Grief can come from the loss of a job, divorce, or even a diagnosis of an illness. We will be learning, caring, sharing, and going through the healing process together.

You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone.

GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. GriefShare is led by people who understand what you are going through and want to help. You’ll gain access to valuable GriefShare resources to help you recover from your loss and look forward to rebuilding your life. You are welcome to join any session, as each session is “self-contained,” so you don’t have to attend in sequence.
