Coping with bereavement
Living with grief and loss.
Bereavement affects almost everyone at some point, and at times it can leave you feeling very alone.
The new, free advice guide: Coping with bereavement helps you better understand your feelings after the death of someone close, and offers advice on how to deal with bereavement and where to find support.
Grief is a complex and intensely personal experience and there’s no right or wrong way of coping with it. It might not seem possible now, but people usually find ways to cope with their loss and live satisfying lives despite it. It’s important to know that support is available. You’re not alone. Grief can affect anyone, young or old, but may make older people more likely to feel lonely, experience poor health or be at risk of poverty.
