The death of someone close can be shattering.

Everyone experiences grief differently: there is no “normal” or “right” way. Reactions will be influenced by many different things including age and personality, cultural background and religious beliefs, previous experience of bereavement, our circumstances and how we cope with loss.

The pages below support you to help yourself and other people, including adults, children and young people who may be struggling to cope after the death of someone close and where you can get more advice and support.
