When someone you are close to dies, it may feel as though your life has changed forever. The loss of a parent, friend, family member or pet can be devastating and may come about in a variety of ways such as an accident, illness or old age. Coping with this loss can be very difficult to deal with and you may go through a variety of emotions. It is normal to feel sad, angry, confused and hurt. You may sometimes not even understand your own feelings. Don’t be afraid to share your feelings with your family or friends. Talking about the person who died helps to remember them and will let people know how sad you are. Crying is also a really good way to let go, or try drawing or writing how you feel. Over time these feelings do get better.

Remember if the person you first speak to does not help or does not believe you then speak to someone else.
