Chapter 5: Is there a right way to grieve?

Key ideas

  • There is no one "right" way to grieve.
  • There are many myths about healthy and unhealthy ways to grieve. They are unhelpful because they are not true.
  • If your grief has not lessened after three to six months, talk with your family physician about counselling options or finding a grief support group.
