Loss / Bereavement / Let It Out Safely

Loss means ‘the fact or process of losing something or someone’.

State of Mind would like to encourage people to let their feelings out in a safe way and have listed a number of key contacts where people can get help and support below.

Loss in sport and in life will affect all of us at some point

We grieve after any sort of loss such as jobs, physical health injuries to ourselves or other people, relationships, sporting losses but most powerfully after the death of someone we love

Losing someone brings on a range of feelings and it can take a while to get through

Some of those feelings include feeling stunned, numb, wanting the person to be back with you, getting angry and feeling guilty about things

Friends and relatives can help and offer to listen and let people let out the emotions and talk about their feelings in a safe place

Some people feel uncomfortable talking about loss and this can make people feel like they are being avoided, take round a cake or flowers and let people talk and just listen and say you don’t know what to say if that’s how you feel

Let out the emotions with people you know and let friends and family help and listen
