Grief and Loss


Grief and loss are universal human experiences, often associated with the death of a loved one, the end of a significant relationship, or other major life changes. These emotions can take a toll on mental health, but healing is possible. Attend Mental Health helps you explore the mental health aspects of grief and loss and offers approaches to support the healing process.

Understanding Grief and Loss

Grief is a natural response to loss and can manifest emotionally, physically, and mentally. Common emotions include sadness, anger, guilt, and even relief. Grief is a highly individualized process, with no universally correct or incorrect way to grieve. Be patient and kind to yourself as you go through the grieving process.
