To honor 35 years of these invaluable programs at St. Mary’s Medical Center in Duluth, we invite you to join us as we expand our outreach and our mission.
Grief Support Services include individual counseling, support groups, and community education events—often providing the only opportunity for seriously ill patients and their families to work through complex emotions during their hospital stay. Support and resources are also available at any point in your grief journey, both online and in-person.
