The coronavirus outbreak is affecting the way we are able to grieve. You may be dealing with sudden loss or trauma, and may be cut off from your usual support network. FIND OUT MORE
Grief is a natural process and many people learn to cope with the aid of family and friends. But around one fifth of bereaved people seek professional support to cope with their loss. Whatever stage of grief you’re at, or however recent or long ago the bereavement occurred, if you would like additional support, Cruse Scotland has a range of free, specialist services available to you.
