It's about healing.
Bereavement counselors are available for 13 months after the death of your loved one for your support and guidance. You are encouraged to share your thoughts and ideas out loud to help you understand the meaning and effect of your loss. Talk about your painful feelings (anger, despair, etc) to help reduce their intensity. Reminisce about your loved one to help you remember the life and transition you shared together. Discuss all the changes you are going through in order to understand and transition to a new beginning.
Most people find the best support comes from those who have experienced a similar loss. A support group is an excellent place to find shared losses and experiences. Bereavement Counselors are also available for individual support and counseling, if needed.
