At some point in our life, all of us are going to experience significant loss, for example, the death of a loved one. Grief is the normal process that follows such a loss. People respond to grief in a variety of ways – it is a very individual experience.
Although many people do not have trouble working through their grief process alone and/or with the support of friends and family, for some of those experiencing acute or complicated grief, or those without adequate support, coping with their grief may be extremely difficult.
Speaking to a counsellor can facilitate the grief process, thereby offering hope of reaching some point of resolution. USQ Student Services provides a free confidential counselling service for currently enrolled students, so if you are having difficulties working through your grief process, we are here to support you.
