Coping with grief and loss is never easy and over the last two years, marginalized populations have been disproportionately impacted by grief due to the COVID-19 pandemic. When someone close to you is dealing with the loss of a loved one, it can be challenging to know what you can say or do to be supportive. This webinar will provide information to increase understanding of the grief experience, the impact of grief on mental and physical health, and provide the audience with guidance and creative solutions for supporting their grieving friends, family members, and colleagues.
