    Bereavement Group - Always Loved & Supported

    We are pleased to launch a new program - Always Loved & Supported

    This is a specialized program to support those who have lost a loved one to ALS.  The focus will be on helping those bereaved to cope with their loneliness, how to understand their new roles, and healing ways to manage their emotional pain.  We will be hosting a virtual meeting on the fourth Wednesday of every month from 7pm to 8:30pm, beginning in May 2018.  You may access the virtual group using this link https://zoom.us/j/677190871, and you will need to initially download the Zoom video conference via this website - https://zoom.us/ (sign up is free).

    For questions regarding the program, please reach out to Jennifer Beckman, LCSW, CSW-G, 309-261-7052 or jennifer@alsachicago.org.
