What Is Grief?
Grief is the natural reaction to loss. It is both a universal and a personal experience. Individual experiences of grief vary and are influenced by the nature of the loss. Some examples of loss include the death of a loved one, the ending of an important relationship, job loss, loss through theft, the loss of independence through disability, or the loss of a dream or expectation.
