Porter to host grief support groups

MIDDLEBURY — A support group for people dealing with grief will be hosted by the Porter Medical Center and the Palliative Care Department for seven weeks in January and February.

People interested in participating must register by Jan. 5 so that facilitators can connect with them beforehand to make sure the group is appropriate for them. This is not a drop-in group; participants are expected to attend all sessions.

The Grief Group will take place on Zoom each Thursday from Jan. 12 through Feb. 23, from 7-8:30 p.m. 

Facilitators for the meetings will be Mika Barker-Hart and Taylor Zak, both licensed clinical social workers.

Louella Richer, manager of End of Life Services, will host the group.

To do the required registration contact Mika Barker-Hart via email at [email protected] or Louella Richer at [email protected].
