Haven activities include individual support, six week support groups and afternoon workshops.  Haven has six week support groups for suicide survivors, widow/widowers, and general bereavement.  Haven usually has support groups twice a year, in the Spring and in the Fall.

Haven also makes community presentations and provides trained speakers for community groups, civic groups and other public and private organizations to inform them about bereavement issues, the effects of grief on employees, and other related issues. (To request a speaker, please contact Haven.)  Information about issues related to grief can be found at Haven’s website, www.havenofnova.org.  The website lists books related to grief and has links to articles and other websites.
