What Is Bereavement & Grief?

Bereavement & Grief is the emotional distress caused when a loved one, a pet or something else such as a relationship or friendship, or a job, that you love is taken away.
Everyone experiences loss in different ways and there is no set time limit to grieving.
Although everyone deals with loss in different ways, there is always a natural process to go through, and emotions to process.
You cannot control your response to the grieving process and the feelings and emotions may at times be very strong and hard to cope with, but with support you will heal over time. - Shock
