Virtual Support Groups via Zoom

New Virtual Support Groups forming.  All groups will be facilitated by a licensed social worker and will be hosted on zoom for those that pre-register only.

COVID Support Group

Many people are feeling the effects of social isolation, adjusting to changing work or parenting situations, and adjusting to a new “normal.” With life changing at such a rapid pace and so much of the future unknown, if is understandable to seek support and reassurance at this time. This 8-week group will help members process and work through the stressors and anxiety unique to our current times.  For more information about this group, please contact Sheila Goloboy, 631-462-9800 x151 or sgoloboy@syjcc.org.

COVID Loss Support Group 

Grieving can be especially hard when we are mourning someone lost in the current pandemic. We are isolated from others and are missing the usual rituals of saying goodbye, such as funerals and other gatherings. We are also grieving other losses—our typical routines, work and home situations, and overall sense of security. This 8-week group provides an opportunity to process your grief with those in similar circumstances. For more information about this group, please contact Sheila Goloboy, 631-462-9800 x151 or sgoloboy@syjcc.org.

Are you grieving the loss of a spouse and need support? Join one of our bereavement groups starting this month.
