The pandemic revealed many societal loopholes and we have learnt to improvise in some of these areas. At that time, many people all across the world went without the typical bereavement tools including the physical presence of family and friends.
It is also true that many people grieve in isolation. The danger of angry isolation is that it may turn into clinical depression or contemplations of suicide.
Online grief resources offer ability access to connect and share with others who are going through a similar grief journal. Some of these resources are outlined below:
Online Grief Counselling
Therapy platforms may be accessed by way of a website or a mobile app. Licensed therapists will offer a personalised service and guide you towards a healing process.
However, you should ensure that the site is trustworthy and professional.
Chat groups are open at all times, every day on different social media platforms. For instance, Facebook chat groups provide a lot of information and support for different loss experiences.
