With the increased use of the internet and social media, people have found it helpful to have online grief support. Online support lets you connect with people who are grieving losses similar to yours; they can reduce the sense of isolation caused by geographical or physical/medical constraints and increase feelings of validation. Many of the groups are loss-specific and many are moderated by professionals. As always with online groups, be careful to make sure the group is authentic.
