ONLINE PEER SUPPORT GROUPS
The Austin Center for Grief & Loss is offering our peer based support groups using an online video platform. Please note, following recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local health departments, we have temporarily paused our on-site support groups. To inquire about a group call 512.472.7878.
The safety, well-being, and health of the people we serve, our volunteers, and staff, are our highest priority. The Austin Center for Grief & Loss is committed to supporting the safety of our community.
We understand that grieving people may be especially vulnerable to anxiety and feelings of isolation during times of uncertainty. Through this time of concern and closures in our community, The Austin Center for Grief & Loss will be providing the option for persons participating in support group services to receive individual, telehealth services for grief, loss, anxiety and other mental health impacts. A telehealth video session with an Austin Grief therapist can be scheduled by calling 512.472.7878.
In addition to individual telehealth therapy sessions, Austin Grief is offering telehealth Therapy Groups led by a licensed therapist. Please call 512.472.7878 to participate.
To create a safe and supportive environment for you and our group members, all new members must schedule an intake consultation with one of our therapists prior to their first group meeting. We cannot schedule an intake for new members the same day as their first group meeting.
CURRENT ONGOING GRIEF & LOSS PEER SUPPORT GROUPS
Peer support groups are ongoing and meet online 2 times per month, unless otherwise stated. Each group is facilitated by two trained volunteers and supervised by a licensed clinician. We strive to keep our groups small to foster safety and offer time to attend to each member. Please call our office at 512.472.7878 for more information.
Our registration/intake session for a support group is a one-time, $75.00 fee. It is the desire of Austin Grief for all who seek assistance to be served, regardless of financial situation. Our peer support groups are donation based. There are no ongoing fees to attend.
