Grief is a normal and natural, though often deeply painful, response to loss. It is not just one feeling, but a whole succession of feelings such as numbness, anger, guilt, despair, irritability, relief, or anxiety. Each of us responds differently to loss and it can take time to heal. Coping with grief when someone close to you has died is incredibly difficult. While it may be extremely hard to come to terms with your loss, there are strategies you can use to help you work through your feelings. If you have a friend or family member who is grieving, it can be hard to know how to console him or her. No matter how they choose to deal with it, the grieving person needs the support of others. If you find yourself uncertain of what to do in the face of someone's loss, try some of the points in our Tips on Helping Someone who is Grieving page. If you’d like further information, this section also includes a professional support and self help resources page to help you through the journey.
