Grief & Loss

Grief is a strong, sometimes overwhelming emotion for people, regardless of whether their sadness stems from the loss of a loved one, parents' divorce, or from a terminal diagnosis they or someone they love have received (or any other situation that causes intense sadness and loss). Loss can be such an emotional, unsettling, and confusing experience (especially loss of a loved one). It is normal to feel very sad, in shock, angry, confused, and experience a whole range of emotions. Grief looks different for everyone – some people may want to talk about it right away, others might want time alone to grieve. It is up to the person experiencing the loss to decide what is best for them.
