avement and these physical ailments. For instance, bereavement can affect the immune system.
  • Bereavement is also associated with different psychological symptoms and illnesses, including depression, anxiety, insomnia and social dysfunction.
  • In extreme cases, losing a loved one can result in clinical depression or even post-traumatic stress disorder.
  • Bereavement can also involve memory problems, loss of appetite and difficulty with concentration.
  • Responses to a loss can range from mild and relatively short-term to more extreme and long-lasting, persisting for months or years.
  • In general, however, the authors stated, grief is a normal, natural process and "professional psychological intervention is generally neither justified nor effective for uncomplicated forms of grief."

    "We try to educate people before they go through a death that this is healthy, normal response and being able to talk about it is a healthy, normal thing to do," Lancto said.
