Te Hikuwai resources for wellbeing: Grief/Tāmitanga kahu tara

This resource is for people experiencing grief/tāmitanga kahu tara who want further information and support to heal after loss.

Grief is a normal and expected part of life. It is a reaction to loss like losing a whānau member, an aspect of self, whānau or community. This may include the passing of a loved one, loss of significant relationships, a part of ourselves, or the impact of mental health and physical health challenges experienced by whānau.

Each person differs in how they heal after loss and the time needed to mourn and adjust. It is a personal and individual experience. There is no “best way” to grieve a loss and manage feelings to reduce the pain.
