Bereavement affects everyone sooner or later. It’s one of the biggest stress factors of life.
Every year millions of people are bereaved across the UK. Decades of ‘death denial’ have left many unsure of their reactions and unsupported sufficiently by those around them.
Pandemic restrictions have also left millions of people with ‘grief on hold’
Unsupported grief can lead to mental and physical ill-health, relationship breakdown, job loss, and debt. It affects behaviour, performance, and outcomes in life.
Finding timely and appropriate support can make all the difference, enabling people to navigate their grief and reach a healthy, new normal.
