The death of a loved one is a life-changing event. At such times it’s natural to experience a sense of loss and bereavement. Such emotions can trigger intense feelings of grief; in some cases lead to depression. Whether you’re experiencing grief or depression, or both, there are several outlets to help with your healing.
If you’re unable to process grief without slipping into depression, we suggest seeking professional help. A grief group or mental health practitioner specializing in loss and bereavement can provide tremendous help. In some instances, treatment options could include therapy or medication.
Everyone mourns the loss of a friend or family member, but that doesn’t mean your life is over. Life will continue after a loved one’s passing. In time you’ll heal and move forward; hopefully, celebrate and honor your beloved’s life for years to come.
