|Grieving is a natural part of bereavement. There is no right way to grieve and dealing with grief during isolation may intensify feelings.|
|Reaching out to friends and family can be one of the most helpful ways to cope when someone close to us passes away.
There are also helplines and websites that you can use to get support and find information to help yourself or someone else going through bereavement.
However you are feeling is okay but if you start to feel depressed, alone, very angry or anxious there’s a lot you can do to understand the way you’re feeling and start feeling better.
It’s not always easy to notice when your emotions are getting the better of you and when you should get support.
If your feelings are getting in the way of everyday life such as enjoying your usual activities, wanting to speak to friends and family, or taking care of responsibilities like work and personal hygiene use the resources below.
