Title: Recognising the grief response and mental illness (PDF file - 93 KB) (Links to English resource)
Summary: When we think of grief we normally associate it with someone passing away. When we have a loved one with a mental illness we also experience intense waves of grief as we mourn the losses in their lives and often the changes in our relationship with them. Both the person with the mental illness, and those who love and care for that person, experience loss.
