Grief and caregiver support groups

MAP offers various support groups in which all members can come together to share their experiences, stories, tips, and find comfort with each other. Support groups help us to see that you don’t have to struggle alone, and there are others who may be dealing with a similar situation. Our support groups run throughout the school year and are held in a confidential space.
