Grief & Loss

Grief and Loss

Everyone experiences loss at some point in their life.

Although grief can be very painful, it is a natural and normal part of life.

  • There is no right way to grieve – everyone grieves in their own way.
  • For some people, the grieving process may last a few weeks or months until they have time to adjust and adapt to the loss.
  • Other people may not show any outward signs of grief, and appear to move on quite quickly.
  • Still others may grieve for much longer periods of time and need professional help to move on.
If you are grieving a loss and the pain that you feel doesn’t weaken or diminish as time goes on, consider talking to your doctor about how you’re feeling. You may benefit from talking to a trained mental health professional.
