What is Grief?

Grief is an intense and overwhelming feeling of deep sorrow often following a loss. This is a natural reaction we face after experiencing a loss. The loss you experience could be from the death of a loved one, a diagnosis of a terminal illness, or the end of a relationship or job. When we suffer from grief, there is no set timeline of mourning and it can vary depending on the individual.
