The information on this page is about the thoughts and feelings you may have following the death of your relative or friend. We also have information about the support that may be available and what you can do to help yourself.
The feelings we describe are ones you may feel soon after the person has died, some weeks or months afterwards, or both. They may come and go. Some may last a short time, while others go on for longer. There is no ‘normal’ for how you will feel. You will need to take things day by day.
