Bereavement will affect people in many different ways and can cause a variety of physical and mental symptoms. Grief is a natural process but some people are quite surprised by the intensity of their feelings and thoughts in the early days of bereavement, and they worry that these feelings are not normal.
In Merton there are bereavement services for those people who may be finding it difficult to cope with the death of a relative or friend. You can access these services directly. Sometimes just talking through the event with someone who is not involved will help you adjust to the situation.
