Grief & Loss

When a loved one dies, the grief and feeling of loss can turn your world upside down. Often we feel as though our lives have been uprooted and that we are unable to cope with day to day life. Understanding and supporting children and teens during this time can be difficult. It is important during these times to look after yourself too. For more advice on this check out our Parental wellbeing tip sheet under Family Troubles section.
