Good Grief - a student grief group 
A place of community and hope for those grieving the loss of a loved one

Do you find yourself needing to be in community with others that have experienced a loss? Do you need others that "get it"? 

Then come join us on Thursdays.  This information group is a safe place to share your hurt and your joys.  No matter where you are in your grieving process, you are welcome.

        This grief group meets on Thursdays at 2pm in the Bobo Spiritual Life Center.

When to seek counseling:

            · When it becomes almost impossible for you to get out of bed.

· When you have thoughts of harming yourself of others

· When you have not talked to anyone about your loss.

· When you experience a sudden change in personality.

Consolation Service

Every December the Office of Spiritual Life holds a Christmas consolation service for those in the Baylor community who are experiencing grief and loss. This service is a time of worship in which we acknowledge our situation and lift it up before God. For more information please contact Spiritual Life at 245-170-3517.
