After the loss of a loved one, it’s not unusual for an individual to experience a wide range of feelings and emotions. Grief is a completely natural response to loss.

Learn about some of the benefits of attending a bereavement support group in this week's Changing Lives Podcast.

Learn tips for how to talk to children about death in this week's Changing Lives Podcast.
