Carolina Caring offers online support group for hidden grief


“Hidden grief” is any grief that is not widely acknowledg­ed, such as the feelings of loss that come from a divorce, overdose, infertilit­y, decline in health, or other life event. Because this grief is often minimized, it can be difficult to work through, and may leave one feeling lonely and misunderst­ood.

That’s why Carolina Caring is offering a support group on Hidden Grief on Monday, May 16 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. It is designed to validate grievers’ feelings as they process their hidden loss. The group is offered virtually through Zoom and requires registrati­on.

Instructio­ns for participat­ing with be provided. To register, please visit CarolinaCa­, contact wspurling@ carolinaca­ or call 828.466.0466, ext. 3201.
