Crew Health Advice: Grief - Our Journey to Healing
Loss is an inevitable, fundamental truth of life that bonds people together. Grief is the emotional suffering we experience when we lose someone or something valuable to us. The death of a loved one is one of the most painful experiences in life that can leave us feeling devastated, sad and heartbroken. But death is not the only loss we encounter in life; divorce, relationship break ups, illness or the loss of health, the death of a pet, a miscarriage, the loss of a job, the loss of financial security, the letting go of our dreams and hopes and all things that we value in life, may evoke powerful feelings of grief.
This advice, written in collaboration with I.M.E.Q. covers the emotional reactions one may experience, the stages, signs and symptoms of grief as well as how to cope with it.
