Coping with Grief



Grief is the normal process of reacting to a loss. For most people, their main experience of grief will be following the death of someone they care about.

Although we mostly associate grief with death, it is important to remember that we can experience feelings of grief after other losses such as family breakdown, losing a job or going through life-changing events or illnesses. Many people will be experiencing grief related to the current pandemic, after having lost a friend or family member, or adapting to the loss of their ability to live life as they previously did.

To help people cope with feelings of grief, whatever the cause, we've produced a booklet about signs and symptoms which you can access here. We have also produced a mindfulness audio to give you some support around feelings of grief and loss. You can download it here.
