For most of us, bereavement will be the most distressing experience we will ever face. Grief is what we feel when somebody we are close to dies. Everyone experiences grief differently and there is no 'normal' or 'right' way to grieve. This section explains how you may feel when you lose someone close to you. 

This section is part of about grief, which also includes information on supporting yourself, supporting others, children, young people, and schools, and military and traumatic bereavement.
