Mental Health in Laguna Beach

Laguna Beach has some of the lowest numbers of severe and fatal traffic injuries in Orange County, as well as all of Southern California with an average of 11 serious injuries per 100,000 people.2 But despite the above-average driving skills of Laguna Beach residents, thousands of traffic-related fatalities occur throughout the state each year. In 2012, the number totaled 2,857.3 The sudden loss of a friend or family member can cause tremendous grief and many people find it difficult to navigate the stages of grief alone. Several organizations in Laguna Beach offer grief support and grief counseling to those in need.

Faith-based organizations often provide grief support services to the residents of Laguna Beach and group participants do not have to be members of the church, temple, or other religious community. One such organization is the Laguna Presbyterian Church, offering an 8-week course called Growing Through Grief, led by licensed therapists and ministers.4 Call 949-494-7555 for information about the group and special grief seminars.

Current Education

St. Joseph Health Mission Hospital, formerly South Coast Medical Center, offers educational materials and support to help adults through the grieving process. The class is called Living Life Again and meets three times a year for 10 weeks. The groups are offered free of charge because Mission Hospital is a non-profit institutional member of the St. Joseph Health System. The groups are designed to help, inform, and support individuals who are dealing with a loss. Call 949-364-1400 x5399 for dates and locations regarding grief support.5
