Dealing with bereavement

Are you struggling to cope with the loss of a loved one?

If you have experienced bereavement within the last year and are struggling to manage or come to terms with the loss, then our specialist wellbeing workers can help you by providing a listening ear and one to one emotional support.

We can provide you with support in your own home or somewhere that is convenient for you*. Typically, our support for bereavement lasts for six months, but we will also help you to access other support if you need more help.

Our specialist mental health support is designed around what you need. Support may include:

  • Emotional support and reassurance using theories and models of bereavement
  • Practical support – signposting, help with arrangements, accompanying to appointments
  • Creative emotional support, for example memory boxes and craft ideas
  • Therapeutic support – resources and advice around stress control and anxiety management, either individually or in a group setting.

*This specific support is currently only available to people living in the East Riding, however if you have been recently bereaved you may still find support within one of our other services.


Bereaved by suicide?

We can provide practical and emotional support in your own home, including CBT techniques you can learn to use yourself. We support with memory boxes, funeral planning and support, attending inquests and help with debts and finances.

We can offer 6-12 focused sessions with a qualified member of our team who is experienced in bereavement and loss. We use a friendly and supportive approach to help you to recover and stay well.
