Grief / Bereavement and Depression in East Sussex

Even though grief and depression share many of the same characteristics, there are important differences between them. I believe that grief is an entirely natural response to a loss, while depression is an illness. However, sometimes, it can be hard to distinguish between feelings of grief and depression.

People who are grieving in East Sussex find that feelings of loss and sadness come in waves, but they are still able to enjoy things and are able to look forward to the future. However, those who are depressed in East Sussex have a constant feeling of sadness; they do not enjoy anything and have little sense of a positive future.

Many people in East Sussex find that talking with a counsellor or psychotherapist is very helpful when they are bereaved. Grief and bereavement often lasts for longer than many friends and family expect and talking to a counsellor can be very beneficial.
