Death or loss involves losing someone or something. This person or thing may have been important in your life.
Understanding death and loss
You may experience the loss of a family member, a friend, a neighbour, a pet or something that was very important to you. When we are affected by a death or loss, we can experience a range of emotions. Talking about these feelings can help us to understand them.
Death can happen to anyone at any age, young or old. Someone can be sick for a long time before they die, or they can die suddenly. Other losses can include moving house, moving school, moving country, moving away from friends or the break-up of a family.
