Many people struggle dealing with the emotions that surround grief and are unable to express how they feel to their family and friends. This could be because of the confusing and conflicting emotions such as sadness, despair or even anger at a loved one’s passing but this doesn’t mean they don’t need support. Grief support can be found in a variety of different places and many feel more comfortable discussing their grief online in an anonymous or like-minded setting which is free of judgement. With this in mind, here are some online support services to help deal with grief and associated trauma;
