Healing after Loss Booklet (4MB)

Please know that everyone’s grief experience is unique and very personal. There is no right or wrong way to grieve. Grief can be unpredictable and you may experience emotions you have not experienced before. Reactions to this experience can range from discomfort through to a sense of being overwhelmed. In living with the grief you will find what helps and what doesn’t help.

You are the expert in your own loss. However we hope this booklet may be a companion and assistant at this time and into the future.
