Coping with Grief

A natural, yet painful response to loss

Addressing Cumulative Stress and Loss

There is no right or wrong way to grieve, but there are healthy ways to cope with the pain and express your emotions in ways that allow you to heal.

You may associate grief with the death of a loved one, but any loss can cause grief, including the loss of a relationship, your health, your job, or your aspirations. After a significant loss, you may experience all kinds of difficult and surprising emotions, such as numbness, anger, hopelessness and guilt.

Everyone grieves differently, but there are healthy ways to cope and heal from the pain.
