An anonymous student sends in this tip about Wes’s grief support group, which is having its first meeting this Wednesday (and all subsequent Wednesdays) at 7:30:
Have you lost someone that you loved/knew well/sort of knew? Do you wish that you were able to talk about it sometimes and not have people react really uncomfortably? Want the option to talk and listen in a really supportive place?
Consider coming to the student-run Grief Group, a group of people who get together one evening a week to shoot the breeze in an environment that makes it totally comfortable and non-awkward to bring up issues of death and grieving. You don’t need to be actively mourning someone to belong at Grief Group. You don’t have to feel sad to come talk and hang out. You also are never required to keep coming. Stop by whenever you need or want to.
We meet Wednesday nights at 7:30 pm in the Solarium room in the Health Center. Go in the back door (facing Malcolm X house) and follow the signs up the stairs, around the corner, and into the former WesWell area. The Solarium will be at the end of the hall when you turn left.
For more information please don’t hesitate to contact one of the student facilitators, Sarah-Anne Tanner [stanner(at)wesleyan(dot)edu] or Rachel Santiago ([rtsantiago(at)wesleyan(dot)edu].
Hope to see you there – there’s no reason to grieve alone. There is always chocolate, and there are always grief puns.
Date: Wednesday, September 28
Time: 7:30 pm
Place: Solarium room, Health Center
