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 – Child Loss Support Group

Entry Map

We would love to hold your grieving hearts for a bit…to help offer you hope where there is despair. Losing your child is hard. It’s hard work to watch the world continue to turn while you feel that yours has been shattered. It’s hard to watch the years go by and feel like your child has been forgotten. Or that your grief has been forgotten. Please join others who understand both your sorrows and your joys–and the complex emotions that accompany both.

  • Adults Only
  • Parents
