• Grief Support Group
Grief is a natural and universal response to any kind of loss. Grief may include physical, emotional, cognitive, social, or spiritual responses.
Grief is a journey or a process and not a once-in-a-lifetime event. Everyone's journey is personal and unique because of the special relationship to the person, object, or dream that is lost. Each one of us experiences many moments of grief during our lifetime.
Grief is not an experience limited to adults. Children and adolescents also experience grief and loss. It is important that young people receive support in their journey of grief from understanding and caring adults.
Rice Grief Center is located at Rice Memorial Hospital in Willmar. Their purpose is to provide community-based and regional support, education, and training for all aspects of the grief and loss process. The Rice Grief Center also provides outreach services in Appleton, Benson, Dawson, Granite Falls, Montevideo, Ortonville/Graceville, and Paynesville.
Services of the Rice Grief Center do not require a referral. To schedule an appointment, please call: 320-231-4714. Services are available to anyone and are confidential. There is no charge for most of the services provided by the Rice Grief Center.
