Grief and Loss

Grief and Loss

Everyone experiences grief differently, and this takes everyone some time to work through.  While everyone finds their own way to grieve it’s important to have the support of friends to talk about your loss when you need to.

It can feel scary to be there for someone who’s grieving, many people say they do not know what to say or do. However, often it is the simple offer of love and support that is the most important. See the below resources for more information on how you can be there for your grieving friend.
