It’s not easy to deal with grief and sometimes asking a family member or friend for support isn’t an option. Different people have different ways to cope with grief and some of these coping mechanisms can be unhealthy or counterproductive. There are several online resources and support systems available to help you go through grief in a steady and healthy manner and here’s a list of some services that can help.
