Understanding Grief & Bereavement

Event Date: Wed 25th Oct, 12 noon

Presenter: Steve Heath


Bereavement and grief are things we will all experience at some point in our lives. Most people associate grief with the loss of a loved one – however we can also experience feelings of loss, grief and bereavement following the loss of a pet, the breakdown of a relationship, the loss of a job and on receiving a diagnosis of a terminal or life-limiting illness. This session will explore the relationship between loss, grief, bereavement and mental health; how we can manage grief in healthy ways; and how we can support others who are experiencing loss or grief.

After attending the session participants will be able to:

  • Understand how to have a conversation about grief
  • Support someone that has experienced loss or bereavement
  • Manage our own feelings of loss or grief in healthy ways
