Although it is common for people to want to find their own way through grief and avoid seeking help, grief support can make a remarkable difference. Experiencing the death of a loved one can overwhelm our ability to cope; some things are simply bigger than we are and require more resources than we have available. It is a sign of strength to reach out for help and resources in times of need. Most people feel strengthened, encouraged and supported when they learn about grief, understand how it affects them, identify coping strategies and learn new methods to help themselves through the grief experience.
