You may have lost a member of your family/whānau or a friend. Or you may feel devastated by the loss of community members, even if you didn't know them personally.
We all handle grief in different ways. Feeling sad is completely normal, and there are people and services available to help you cope.
Mental Health Foundation – We feel grief if we lose people we love, or things and places we were attached to. It can be a difficult and painful process. The Mental Health Foundation site offers information on symptoms of grief, help and treatment options, and strategies to support recovery.
