Grief and Loss Support

Losing a loved one can cause a wide variety of emotional responses. Each person experiencing loss will have a unique grieving process. Some individuals may immediately show emotion or cry, some may feel angry or betrayed by the loss, and some may remain silent or not visibly show what he or she is feeling. Sometimes, grieving may begin even before a loss, as family and friends deal with an individual’s critical illness or end of life situation.

It is important to remember that there is no right or wrong way to grieve. What is crucial is that each individual receives compassionate support through a time of loss, whether it’s from friends or family, a spiritual leader, a support group, or professional counseling.
