Why Is Grief Education So Important?

I am passionate about grief education because there was a time in my life where I sat down in a counsellor’s chair and said “what is grief?”

Not knowing what grief is makes the whole process so much harder than it needs to be. Grief is isolating. That we all know. But without knowledge of what we can do, pages and charities we can turn to, what group support there is available, journalling techniques, creative writing workshops, I really believe that grief can turn into the fundamental reason / contributing factor for depression, anxiety, mental health issues and unhealthy coping mechanisms.

Sending you all my love,

  1. Hi Evee,
    Many thanks for sharing your thoughts and valuable insights, I say valuable because of everything you have shared around your own grief, I often think that grief is often misunderstood, very difficult to diagnose and many people find it difficult to accept or talk with someone who may be experiencing grief.
    I agree with you totally that people should look for the best ways of both supporting themselves and being supported by others.
    Journaling is something that I do and find it very beneficial in helping me with my depression and anxiety but also as a measure, support groups and charities, health care professionals can be a very useful support network.
    I’m sure that by your sharing your journey, thoughts and insights many people have the opportunity of being helped.
    I continue to wish you and your sister many blessings best wishes for your futures and may your work continue to help others. ❤️🙏
