Although it is common for people
to want to find their own way through grief and avoid seeking help, grief support
can make a remarkable difference.
Experiencing the death of a loved one can overwhelm our ability to cope; some things are simply bigger than we are and require more resources than we have available.
It is a sign of strength to reach out for help and resources in times of need. Most people feel strengthened, encouraged and supported when they learn about grief,
understand how it affects them, identify coping strategies and learn new methods to help themselves through the grief experience.
Finding Help for Yourself or a Loved One
There is help and support if
you or a loved one is grieving a loss. Counseling and support services can be
a guide through some of the challenges of grieving as a person
adjusts to their loss. Grief support and counseling can be provided by professionals. Self-help groups are often available and are there for participants to support one another.
