The death of a loved one can be devastating and bereavement affects people in different ways.
Talking and sharing your feelings with someone can help. No one should feel alone when dealing with their grief and there are a number of organisations across Greater Manchester who can provide support.
Talking to a bereavement counsellor can give time and space for the bereaved person to talk about their feelings, including the person who has died, their relationships, family, work, fears and the future. Bereavement counsellors can be accessed at any time, even if the person died a long time ago.
Further sources of information, advice, and support for children and adults regarding emotional well-being and mental health are outlined below.
