Grieving the loss of someone we love is a complicated, emotional journey. It’s a painful time, and if not handled in healthy ways, can impact a person’s mental health. Since it looks like this is a topic you’re familiar with and that people look to you for guidance on, would you be willing to add a few grief-related resources somewhere on your site? I think these are particularly insightful:
Preparing for the Death of a Terminally-Ill Loved One: What to Expect, and How to Help the Entire Family Move Forward
Symptoms of Major Depression and Complicated Grief
Guidelines for Helping Grieving Children
Coping With The Stigma of Grieving an Overdose Death
