According to Mental Health America, an organization founded in 1909 and dedicated to wellness, the loss of a loved one is life’s most stressful event. To that end, Gwinnett Medical Centers (GMC) Foundation is hosting a free community event that’s designed to help those who are grieving and mourning effectively cope.
The event will feature guest speaker Alan Wolfelt, PhD, an author, educator, and grief counselor. During the event, Wolfelt will help guests explore questions relevant grief and mourning.
“The bereavement process impacts everyone,” said Jason Chandler, president of the foundation. “Our organization is designed to offer relevant programming to improve lives and through this talk we will help people cope with grief and loss.” Chandler added that this program complements GMC’s palliative care services, created to make patients and their families more comfortable in handling end of life issues.
