The COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic means we now have to follow social distancing and other measures. The things we would usually do after the loss of someone close now have to be done differently. A confidential bereavement support line is available from the Irish Hospice Foundation and HSE.
The freephone service on 1800 80 70 77 is available Monday to Friday from 10am to 1pm. Callers will be given emotional support and information on any practical issues that may be helpful to them.
If you need more support, use one of the phone or online mental health support services available to you.
If your grief is becoming overwhelming, or you are having trouble sleeping, talk to your GP.
