Throughout December, Gurls Talk Grief, and I have one of the most accomplished panels of experts to help us unpack this devastating and taboo subject.
@ProfessorGreen uses his experience with his father’s suicide to show us how we should be celebrating the lives of those lost. Julia Samuel MBE tells me about her pillars of strength and how kickboxing is her secret weapon for coping with grief. And Amy Green explains why the bereavement charity, Cruse, is so valuable for those dealing with the loss of a loved one, however long ago it was.
If you’re dealing with grief then there are many charities and organisations that can offer crucial support. Visit www.cruse.org.uk for one-on-one help and advice. For support around the death of a child, visit www.childbereavement.org.uk. To explore Julia Samuel’s 8 Pillars of Strength, visit www.griefworks.co.uk. To sign the petition for Stephen and Cruse’s campaign for A National Grief Awareness Day, visit https://www.change.org/p/matthew-hancock-mp-a-national-grief-day-to-remember-those-we-ve-lost.
