A Place of Hope and Comfort


Caring Connections offers a variety of grief support groups throughout the year. Each of our support groups help you cope with a different kind of loss. The groups are eight weeks in length and are facilitated by expert clinicians in the fields of social work, nursing, counseling, and psychology.

We use small groups to allow each person to fully participate in the group discussion. The groups help you adjust to the death of a family member or close friend.

Through education and support from group leaders, and by sharing with others who are experiencing grief, we hope you will grow in your walk through grief.

Caring Connections is a hope and comfort in grief program that was established in 1997 by Beth Cole, PhD. We are a program of the University of Utah College of Nursing.
