This group is open to adults 18 or older and provides a safe, supportive place to be with people who are, or have been, in the same boat as you. You may be having feelings such as anger, denial, shock, depression, loneliness, rejection, or abandonment. These all are normal for where you are. You will be able to share how you feel in a safe place, and get support and comfort from others who have been there that can understand and empathize. We follow the "I pass" guideline, which means you choose when and how much you share.
No matter how long ago your loss was, 1 month, 1 year or several years we can all learn from and help each other. When you are able to attend your first meeting you will find a community of friends that will listen and let you know you are not alone "We Get It". If you do not connect with people the first time you attend - keep coming back. We always have new members joining and the age of our members vary considerably from one meeting to the next.
Let’s all work hard to offer each other a variety of resources that apply to any stage of the evolving journey of grief. There is no "moved on" or "getting over it" our loss is forever, and eventually we learn what our new life looks and feels like "After our loss." Hopefully the new friends that we make at these meetings will eventually be a part of our "After" futures.
This group is ongoing and meets every month on the First and Third Friday @ 11am for 1 hour at The LGBTQ Center @ 401 S Maryland Parkway, Las Vegas NV.
