Bereavement, Grief and Loss

People react to death in different ways

It is often quite a shock when someone you know dies, even when it is an expected death after a long illness. This section provides information and resources that may be of help during this difficult time.

The death of someone you know will change things forever. What helps will often depend on the relationship and circumstances surrounding death. For some it can take a long time to recover. Everyone reacts differently when someone dies and there is no right or wrong way to grieve. For some people grief and sadness will interrupt their life and talking with a GP can be important.
