Observing National Grief Awareness Day

Observing National Grief Awareness Day

Let’s take time to heal this National Grief Awareness Day.

Today is National Grief Awareness Day, a day that recognizes the time that it takes to heal from a loss.  This day serves as a reminder that closure comes in many different forms and that grief can manifest itself in many different ways.

On this day, let’s take stock of those in our lives who have been affected by loss.  It could be the death of a loved one, a major life change, a loss of a close relationship, or so on.  Regardless of what the person is struggling through, we should do what we can to ease their mind and make the grieving process a little bit easier.

Simply letting the other person that we are there and that we care is perhaps one of the best things that we can do for a grieving individual.  Let’s send them a reminder that we are always there for them if they need comfort or support.  However, it’s important to remember that we cannot control another’s grieving process.  So, we should be careful that we do not place unnecessary pressure or burden onto a grieving individual.  Let’s offer our help, but in a non-obtrusive, undemanding way.

By being a quiet and constant source of support, we can help those around us as they grieve their losses.  Remember, going through the grieving process is natural and expected after someone experiences a serious loss or a major life change.  However, if you are ever worried about your mental health or the mental health of another as they grieve, then please seek professional help.  For assistance with your mental health concerns, contact a national helpline at 1-800-273-8255 (National Suicide Prevention Lifeline) or 1-877-726-4727 (SAMHSA Treatment Referral Helpline).

We at The Maria Sanchez Show hope you will join us as we look to offer our support this National Grief Awareness Day.  Don’t forget to check out our latest program, Shadow Politics with Senator Michael D. Brown.  Tune in on Sundays at 4:00 p.m. PDT/7:00 p.m. EDT.
