Hands touching

The death of someone close to you can be one of the hardest things you ever have to deal with. It is not something you can be good or bad at, you just have to deal with it as best you can.

How you deal with death is very personal and there is no formula. However, this guide can explain:

  • practical things you may need to sort out
  • how you might be feeling
  • why you might be feeling this way
  • some of the things that could help you now and in the future

You may not want to read this guide now; you could decide to come back to it at a different time, look at it with someone close to you, or talk it over with a bereavement counsellor.
