Grief Support Group Directory

This directory lists a variety of grief support groups in Massachusetts. It includes groups exclusively for people bereaved by a death from substance use, which are indicated by a purple heart icon. Most of the groups are facilitated by peer helpers (bereaved people who help others).

Due to COVID-19 most groups are currently not holding a physical meeting. Please Search below for groups offering virtual meetings.
