Grief Counseling

Grief counseling supports you as you come to terms with the end of your loved one’s life. Indiana University Health grief counselors have extensive experience helping people explore their grief. We create a safe place for this exploration as you develop skills and resources for coping with loss.

IU Health offers comprehensive, personalized grief counseling services. Our team members come from a variety of backgrounds, including chaplaincy, social work, education and mental health. We match you to a counselor or support group that best meets your individual needs and location. Counselors and support groups are available around the state and home visits are available when needed. In many cases, when you request grief counseling you meet with your counselor the same week.

Sometimes a patient or family member requires extra support beyond the scope of our counseling services. If that happens, we can refer you to additional resources within our community to support you and your family. These include our own programs for grieving parents and other organizations dedicated to support for those in mourning.

We recognize that no one grieves in the same way or at the same pace. You may find you need bereavement counseling at varying times during your journey through mourning. IU Health adjusts grief counseling according to your changing needs. We are here to support you and your family through the difficult process of grieving your loss.
