Abstract

The death of a loved one has a profound effect on the surviving spouse or partner, family members, and friends. But the bereaved may not always get the help and support they need. This article reviews the toll that grief takes on individuals and society and highlights the importance of connecting grieving loved ones with resources that can help them. It also suggests a need for health care institutions across the state to share information about their particular resources via the Internet with health care providers and patients.
