Online Support Group for ‘Hidden Grief’ | Local News

NEWTON — “Hidden grief” is any grief that is not widely recognized, such as feelings of loss that arise from divorce, overdose, infertility, declining health or another life event. Because this grief is often minimized, it can be difficult to overcome and can leave you feeling lonely and confused.

That’s why Carolina Caring is offering a Hidden Grief Support Group on Monday, May 16 from 6-7:30 p.m. It’s designed to validate the feelings of the bereaved as they process their hidden loss. The group is offered virtually via Zoom and requires registration. Instructions for participating will be provided. To register, visit, contact [email protected], or call 828-466-0466, ext. 3201.
