Grief is a natural emotional response to the loss of someone or something important to you. Life events such as death, divorce, break-up, job loss, re-location, loss of health due to illness, or loss of safety due to trauma are typical causes of grief. After a loss it is common to experience many different emotions including sadness, despair, shock, anger, and guilt. Sometimes these feelings can be scary and overwhelming; it may feel like they will never go away.
