Support groups are a great opportunity to connect with others dealing with similar situations in life sharing stories, perspectives, inspiration, and empathy. Emotional support from peers as well as trained leaders can be a very effective way to help with recovery, support those with mental illness, learn other's perspectives on common human challenges, and develop healthy emotional connection. We often think we are the only ones with our struggles, but coming together with others can remind us that we are not alone.

Losing a partner is one of the most challenging transitions in a woman’s life. Lemonade is a widow’s support group that provides a safe environment to share grief and discuss struggles we experience after loss. Join to share, listen, ask questions, or be with other women who understand your feelings. You do not have to face it alone. This group is focused on grief, support, and recovery through compassion and encouragement. We need strong emotional connections where we can share openly and honestly. There are many challenges we face as we move through widowhood. It may be inconceivable to imagine a life where you can make “Lemonade” again. If we recognize “Grief as a glass of sour and sweet,” we can help one another heal with hope and rebuild our lives. A widow leads this group with lived experience around grief and loss.
