What is a bereavement? What is grief?
Bereavement is the state of loss which is felt when someone dies.
Grief is the flood of emotions experienced in response to a death.
- Grief is normal and healthy, although it may not feel like it.
- Everyone will grieve in their own way.
- A member of our Young People’s Group described grief as, “A massive bundle of different emotions and intense feelings…”
- There is no time limit on grief and it doesn’t go away, it just changes over time.
