15% of mental health disorders come from unresolved grief

Naturally, our instinct is to shy away from pain, to suppress it, to avoid it and hope it will go away. However, if we don’t face our pain, this can impact other areas of our lives, including our work and relationships.

Did you know that 15% of mental health disorders come from unresolved grief? That’s why it’s crucial to acknowledge it and allow ourselves to feel it.

By embracing and moving through pain, we heal.

You don’t have to go through it alone – it’s easier together

Grief Works has supported over 49,135 individuals in navigating this painful journey by providing guidance on how to manage intense emotions through a step-by-step course and a toolbox containing 40+ interactive exercises. With this, we also offer a compassionate support network of professional bereavement counsellors and a community of others also experiencing grief, who are ready to offer you support whenever you need it.

The Grief Works programme, developed in collaboration with Julia Samuel, serves as a comprehensive resource designed to help you build a sense of safety, peace, and healing.
