Bereavement is the experience of losing someone important to us. It is characterised by grief, which is the process and the range of emotions we go through as we gradually adjust to the loss.
Losing someone important to us can be emotionally devastating and it is natural to go through a range of physical and emotional processes as we gradually come to terms with the loss.
