I'm so sorry to hear about your loss - my deepest condolences. I can't imagine what you must be going through in this moment. What do you need? How can I help/support you?

Just someone to talk to

Hello Dogmad600

I am so sorry that this has happened. It isn't hard to understand why you are finding your mental health has been affected. The loss of a loved ones affects everyone differently and you will need time to grieve.

The first thing is to talk to your doctor about how you are feeling. They will listen and find the best way to help.

Also have you had a look on Mencap's website as there is a page about this - mencap.org.uk/advice-and-su...

If you look on there you can see something called GriefChat that you might find very helpful. It is free and is a chance to someone about how you are feeling.

If you are that webpage a pop will appear (in the bottom right of your screen) where you can chat directly to a specially trained bereavement counsellor. You can remain anonymous or provide your name, whichever you prefer.

GriefChat is available Monday to Friday, from 9am to 9pm. Or you can email info@griefchat.co.uk.

Please also call our helpline on 0808 808 1111 (or you can email helpline@mencap.org.uk if you prefer). Again this is free and they will be able to help you find further support near where you live.

I really hope this helps a little.

Sarah

Yes thanks Sarah
