Peer Support Bereavement Groups:

We have several peer support bereavement groups being led by Moms Stop The Harm parents across the country and unfortunately more are being added as the losses mount and families are left reeling for support and understanding after losses to substance harms, overdose and poisoning.

Below are locations, upcoming meeting dates and contact information for parents and family members who might like to attend a meeting.
