Bereavement

Death of a loved one causes a range of feelings as you try to cope with what has happened.

You may feel anger at the person who died, at your parents, at others or yourself. You may feel guilty, possibly blaming yourself in some way. Talk about what has happened as much as you want to. 

If you have been bereaved, you might experience a huge range of emotions

  • You might not be feeling much at all
  • You might be worried about what's going to happen next.
  • You might be feeling relieved
  • You might be overwhelmed with sadness at one point and then you might want to think about something else the next.
  • You might have people around you that want to talk more than you do
  • You might be struggling to find someone who understands
However you are feeling, there are people who can help.  We have listed some websites on the right where you might find help.

Grief: Support for Young People

An App has been created by a group of young people working with the charity Child Bereavement UK. 

The App has been designed by and for 11-25 year olds who have lost someone close to them and also links to Child Bereavement UK's website where you can use search facilities to find other support organisations near you. 

It can also be used by friends, teachers, parents and professionals who would like to know how to support bereaved young people.

The App is available to download from the App Store
