Grief self-assessment quiz

Are you feeling overwhelmed by grief?

Take this quiz to discover if seeking support could benefit you.

Grief is a natural response to losing someone or something important. However, when it persists, it can cause intense emotional pain, disrupt your daily life, and even lead to physical health problems. The good news is that there are effective treatments available to help you manage your grief and improve your daily functioning.

How does grief relate to other mental health issues?

Grief is closely connected to other mental health challenges and can often intensify or become entangled with them. Experiencing a significant loss, such as the death of a loved one, can lead to profound grief that may trigger or exacerbate conditions like depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This kind of grief can manifest as deep sadness and yearning, causing feelings of hopelessness, social withdrawal, and difficulty concentrating. Additionally, the emotional turmoil of grief can interfere with sleep, appetite, and overall functioning, further affecting your mental health.
