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.

Hope Lives Here – General Grief Support Group

Entry Map

Grief can be lonely and isolating, but it doesn’t have to be. Whether your loss is recent or decades old, we offer support, an ear, and whole lot of hope and laughter. We are a community of grievers who are healing together by listening, sharing (if so inclined), and finding the beauty in the chaos.
