What is Bereavement?
“Bereavement is the state of loss when someone close to an individual has dies. The death of a loved one is one of the greatest sorrows that can occur in one’s life. People’s response to grief will vary depending upon the circumstances of the death, but grief is a normal, healthy response to loss. Feelings of bereavement can also accompany other losses, such as decline of one’s health or the health of a close other, or the end of an important relationship.”
