Bereavement is the experience that follows the death of someone who is important to you and for whom you grieve. There is no set time frame for bereavement; each person’s encounter with bereavement is different and unique to them.
Grieving is a natural and healthy response to loss but the experience can affect you on many levels and it can be lonely and confusing.
In the months and years following a death, most people find a way forward and can begin to live a meaningful life once more. It can be comforting to share this time and know that you don’t have to face your bereavement on your own.
