Being grief kind

When it comes to something as tough as grief, it can be hard to know the right thing to say to support someone. In fact, in can be surprisingly easy to say the wrong things, even if you mean well.

In the UK, the Sue Ryder charity hopes to influence a future where palliative, neurological and bereavement care and support reaches more communities and where everyone can access the quality of care they need and deserve.

Their Grief Kind project helps people to better understand grief, what it is like, and how you can support others who are grieving. With this in mind they have produced a series of podcasts and online video tutorials.

The Grief Kind podcasts are hosted by author, journalist and Sue Ryder ambassador, Clover Stroud. She speaks with celebrities about their personal experiences of bereavement and the support which helped them most when coping with their grief.

The Grief Kind classes consist of five short tutorials wherein bereavement experts answer a range of questions to help you get a basic understanding of grief.

Questions include: What does grief look like? Do men and women grieve differently? Do different cultures grieve differently? And what signs could signal that someone who is grieving might need more support?
