Bereavement Support

There is no right or wrong way to grieve after a significant loss. Most people discover how to eventually move on with life, even though the grief experience is a difficult and trying time. Coping styles depend on one’s personality and their relationship with the person who has died. This experience can also be affected by one’s cultural and religious background, coping skills, mental history, and their support system. Taking care of yourself, accessing the support of friends and family can help a person get through difficult times.
