    Coping with loss and bereavement

    Losing someone we love is painful. There is no right or wrong way to grieve, whether it’s the loss of a parent, partner, child or friend. Initially, you’ll most likely feel shock and pain at your loss. You may then feel angry or that life has dealt you a very unfair blow and experience a period of depression or longing to see the person you have lost one last time. Although painful, embracing your feelings is important in helping you to move on.
