Grief & Loss

Grief and loss are common experiences for both men and women globally, including in Australia [1]. Men may experience a wide range of emotions when grieving, including sadness, anger, guilt, and numbness [2]. It is crucial for men to understand that it is normal to feel these emotions and that seeking help and support is a sign of strength [1].

In Australia, there are various support services available for men who are grieving, including grief counselling, support groups, and online resources [1]. It is also important for men to take care of themselves physically and emotionally during this difficult time. This may involve engaging in physical activity, maintaining a healthy diet, seeking support from friends and family, and practicing self-care [1].
