Quoted From:

"Grief is something most people would rather avoid. But inevitably, the emotional whirlwind of grief and bereavement is a process each of us goes through in our lifetime. Grief is about lossa loss of any kind, whether it"s the death of a family member, pet, the end of a relationship, or even a joband overcoming it is no small task.
But those who are in mourning aren"t alone or without guidance as they navigate the stages of grief. They can begin by educating themselves about what they"re going through and finish strong with the assistance of a mental health professional.
Grief is an unpleasant but inevitable ordeal that nearly everyone experiences at some point. Grief can arise from the death of a loved one (known as bereavement), friend, or pet, a relationship ending, the loss of a job or home, and many other unique situations.
Grief has five common stages: Denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. These stages don"t always occur in a linear fashion, as some people may skip ahead or backward as they mourn.
The stages of grief may be resolved in a matter of months, but in some cases, the healing process can take years. Both are entirely normal, and moving forward after experiencing a profound loss is a deeply personal journey.
Grief can also create physical symptoms, too: Anxiety, fatigue, phantom pains, and autoimmune issues are common among those in mourning.
The best source of mental health treatment for bereavement and other forms of grief is grief counseling, a form of therapy that helps mourners process and accept what they"re experiencing."
