COVID-19 and Bereavement Resources

1st May 2020

The Public Health Agency in conjunction with the Department of Health Regional Bereavement Coordinators Network have produced a few booklets to help during times of grief and bereavement while in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic.

There are 3 booklets in total. The first two offer advice on dealing with grief and bereavement, and practical advice on dealing with those aspects of a death that may be different during the pandemic period. The third deals with helping children to cope with the death of a loved on, and was prepared by the Psychological Services team at the Belfast Health and Social Care Trust.
