Bereavement

May 04, 06:00 AM

Dealing with the death of someone you love is one of the hardest things each of us will ever have to do. Grief can affect us in strange and frightening ways, some so strange and frightening that it's incredibly difficult to talk about them, and if you can't talk about them, then it can feel impossible to find the help you need.

Linda Magistris, our guest on this episode, wants to make it as easy for you to find help as possible. After the sudden death of her partner, Graham, Linda found it very difficult to get up to date information about what services and support was available to her. She didn't want anyone else to have to wait to find help, so she founded the Good Grief Trust - a charity that links up all the UK's bereavement support services under one umbrella. 

Theme music is by Bernadette Ryan.
