When it comes to losing a loved one, professionals agree that everyone has a different way of mourning and there is no set timeline for grief. According to an article by Psychology Today titled “The Ways We Grieve,” grief can become so severe that grieving individuals can develop symptoms that are similar to major depressive disorder, anxiety disorder, or post-traumatic stress disorder.

The death of a person is tragic, but many people take comfort in the thought that the deceased is no longer suffering. After death, the ones who have to deal with long-term suffering are the loved ones left behind. Unchecked grief can be detrimental to a person’s mental health. 

To process the death of a loved one in a healthy, natural manner is no small feat. Bartholomew Funeral Home has a page on its website dedicated to grief support. The page includes links to several mental health resources that can help guide people through their grief.

As people grieve differently, Bartholomew Funeral Home was sure to include a variety of resources to help those who have suffered the loss of a loved one. From discussion boards to radio stations, there are more resources for grieving individuals than many would have guessed.

Webhealing.com, one of the grief support resources recommended by Bartholomew Funeral Home, is an interactive website that offers resources such as articles, forums, and videos. The website was founded by Tom Golden LCSW in 1995. Golden was inspired to launch the website after the death of his father so that he could offer help to others who were struggling with the death of someone close to them.

Willowgreen offers grief support through writing, often coupled with photographs of nature, to soothe the soul. It was established by writer and photographer James E. Miller in the hopes that he could use his talents to bring comfort to those suffering a loss.

Bartholomew Funeral Home’s Grief Support page also includes links to resources such as the American Association of Retired Persons and the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization.

For anyone who would be interested in joining a grief support group, they can check out Valparaiso grief support groups. Grief Share and Psychology Today have a list of different grief support groups currently meeting in Valparaiso.

For those who would like direct help from Bartholomew Funeral Home in their time of grief, they can get involved with the funeral home’s bereavement services.
