During this time of uncertainty and transition many of us are already grieving many different types of losses. These might include in-person interactions, social connection, job stability, economic security, daily routines, and milestone experiences and events. Several of us are also experiencing anticipatory grief over losses we expect to face in the future, and some of us have already lost a loved one. Our sense of the world around us has been shifted, as have our beliefs about the stability and security of our society. Below we have listed some resources on how to take care of yourself after a loss and other resources that we hope will help you navigate this difficult time.
