Overcoming Loss

Overcoming loss, at whatever level, is about grieving. The process of grieving involves emotional and life adjustments after a loss. This process is different for everyone, as is the time the process may take.

  • Loss takes many forms, including loss of life, mobility, hearing, vision, careers, friends, and more.
  • Many groups provide support to aid families and individuals dealing with loss.
  • Speaking to a therapist or counselor, in a group or individual setting, can help those experiencing loss.
