We offer individual counseling and group support.
A licensed clinician supervises all programs and will assist you to determine your needs. You must be 18 years of age or older to participate in the services listed below.

For more information on Support Groups and Individual Adult Grief Support, contact Christy Pitol at cpitol@fvhh.net or call 630.232.2233 x230.

Individual support is available.

After one of our licensed clinicians determines your grief counseling needs, you will be paired with a FVHH volunteer who is extensively trained in all aspects of grief support. The volunteer will work with you for 16 months, providing a “listening ear” and identifying additional resources as needed during this difficult time – all at no charge to you. For adults 18 years of age and older. Call 630.232.2233 for more information, or email Christy Pitol at cpitol@fvhh.net

GROUP PROGRAM for survivors of suicide loss

Light Finders is a six-week support group for survivors of suicide loss. Light Finders provides a safe environment where participants can talk openly – it’s a place where others will listen without judging and where you can share your experience with others who truly understand your loss.

Participation in Light Finders is free; however, you will need to schedule a meeting with one of our licensed clinicians before registering, and a refundable deposit is required. For more information, contact Christy Pitol at 630.232.2233 x230 or email her at cpitol@fvhh.net

ADDITIONAL GROUP PROGRAMS

The Fox Valley Hands of Hope M.A.L.E.S. support group was developed specifically for men who are grieving the loss of a loved one, providing a forum where guys can “let go” and freely express their thoughts and feelings with other men who are experiencing the same challenges.

M.A.L.E.S. group sessions are facilitated by trained, experienced group leaders. This open (drop-in) group meets the second Saturday of each month at 9 a.m. Coffee and doughnuts provided. For more information, call 630.232.2233 or email info@fvhh.net.
