I recenlty lost my younger brother unexpectedly. I have had little success in finding what in the US is called a grief group, a group of like minded people that serve as a support network for people dealing with the loss of someone close. Does anyone have any insights on this topic? I have tried working through the Cruse Bereavement network, but have had little success in finding something of this sort.

Thank you Mis Jo Jo, I have used their page, unfortunately, I have found their information to be out of date, i.e. numbers are not working, or the contacts do not know of a grief group. At least I have been unsuccesful so far. I find it perplexing that there are not groups organized to support people after a loss. Or I cannot find them.
Perhaps, these situations are dealt with differently in the UK. Maybe this loss is dealth with more privately as opposed to group efforts.
I hope you and your family are healing.
You might like to know that Charterhouse In southwark, a charity based in SE1, have a counselling service (not a group). They are at 7407 1123 (Main Reception) and you should be able to get an email address for the organiser (who is likely to know of other services).
