Please join the YWCA for a healing journey as we explore different types of loss, the ways we respond, grief cycles, and healthy ways to approach our grief. In better understanding ourselves and our feelings, we can process our losses in a healing way, providing a groundwork that honors memories and paves a future path.(Keywords: Counseling, Depression, Divorce, Father, Grandfather, Grandmother, Grandparent, Health, Mental Health, Recovery, Support, )
