Grief and Loss

Find links to information that can help you understand grief and loss, and that can suggest how to deal with associated emotions.

Any loss — a death, divorce, a fractured relationship, just to name a few — can be difficult to handle and many people express that even while surrounded by relatives and friends, they often feel abandoned and alone during and after a loss.

On the following pages, you will find information that gives you a better understanding of what people are feeling during a loss, suggestions on what you might say to people to help them through their loss, and other materials that will help support people.

The UCSD Bookstore provides many books and other materials on grief and loss. To search for these items, go directly to the UCSD Bookstore search.
