Are You Living
With Grief?

Prolonged and severe Grief occurs when a person who has lost a loved one is so incapacitated by grief that you cannot care about anything else.
Take this self-assessment test used by mental health professionals to determine if you are experiencing Prolonged Grief.


What Is Grief?

Grief is a natural response to loss, and it can involve a variety of emotions, such as sadness, anger, guilt, and confusion.

While experiencing grief after a loss is normal, 1-in-10 of bereaved survivors suffer
from Prolonged Grief, where you feel unable to adjust to normal life.

Some people may find that the grieving process is complicated by distressing memories,
unresolved issues, or intense emotional reactions related to the loss.

EMDR therapy can be used to help individuals effectively process their grief and facilitate adaptive coping.
