Seeking Professional Help

It’s important not to try to “speed up” the grief process. Coming to terms with a significant loss can take months and even years, not days or weeks.

If you’re struggling to manage – and you’d like to speak with someone beyond your family or close friends – it’s wise to reach out for professional help. Your doctor or a counsellor will be able to assist.

There are also a number of organisations that can help:
