For referring organizations and individuals
Below is a summary of all facilitated groups currently forming with spots open for new joiners.
Please remember that PNW Grief only provides grief education and peer-based support in an online group model. We do not believe this platform to be an acceptable substitute for clinical mental health services, particularly for survivors of traumatic loss.
Check back often for regular updates.
By clicking on the column headers, this table can be re-organized by what you think the person you're referring needs (a specific support type, meeting day, facilitator, etc).

PNW Grief Scholarships
If you would like to explore ways to increase access to the groups listed on our site by sponsoring a named scholarship fund, please contact our team today.
Everyone deserves access to high quality grief education and peer support when they need it most. Our goal is to ensure that anyone needing help can join a group without being deterred by cost. Please email us to find out how you can apply for a scholarship and begin your group experience.
Where do online meetings take place?
PNW Grief uses Zoom for Healthcare, which is HIPAA compliant, has a higher encryption standard than the business version, and a lower bandwidth requirement. A case study on how it is used can be found here >
How are facilitators selected?
All approved facilitators will have the academic backgrounds, professional experience, and personal references to qualify them to create and deliver educational grief content and lead live support group sessions. Facilitators will have to apply, be accepted, complete a detailed onboarding process, and agree to an Ethics Standards Pledge prior to advertising their groups on PNWGrief.com. Facilitators found to be in violation of the Ethics Standards Pledge will not be permitted to host future groups through the PNWGrief or other affiliated regional platforms.
Is this site safe for participants?
Who should I refer to PNWGrief.com?
Anyone grieving who is interested in a group format AND has access to technology and some degree of IT literacy. We also offer complimentary user support opportunities for people new to virtual communications. We are in process recruiting sponsors to help us provide scholarships so that cost will not be a barrier to access. While this platform will not serve to connect all people needing quality grief education and support, we do believe it will make a difference for many in our community.
We would love to connect with you to learn more
Are you a facilitator who would like to help?
DISCLAIMER | All facilitators have a minimum educational background in grief support and mental health. However, facilitators who are also licensed mental health providers are not providing clinical services. PNW Grief provides information and technical support for grief education and support groups. PNW Grief and its sponsors are not liable for the content created and delivered by any participating online facilitators who share their private group offerings on our site.
