One day, someone is gone and your world changes forever...

...and it can feel hard to move forwards.

However, somehow you keep going.

You can talk to others and remember...

...the painful BUT treasured reminders of them.

It's OK to feel moments of joy or to feel lost.

All these things are normal reactions for everyone who experiences loss. Every route is different, you don't have to take yours alone. Sharing these moments can help you to move forward.

Health and care colleagues across our system, as well as patients, can find support at:
