Grief and Loss

What it is

We experience grief and loss much like a "call and response." Grief is the response to losing or being separated from someone, something, where a bond or affection was formed. It can even come from the loss of a way of life, or a place. We express grief in many ways, including emotionally, in our behaviors, and physically.

How we help

Our social emotional materials are designed with the help of medical experts to help destigmatize grief responses to loss that are 100% normal, as well as to promote healing and gentle self-care.
