Webinar: Grief Disguised As Mental Ill-Health
13:15 - 14:00
A high proportion of mental ill-health is grief related, yet grief is unrecognised as the cause.
In this free 45 minute webinar Yvonne Richmond Tulloch, CEO of the charity AtaLoss, will explain why this is, what to look out for and where help can be found to relieve or prevent the issues.
The webinar is for those who have been bereaved – whether recent or long ago, and anyone caring for, or responsible for, the wellbeing of others, including health care workers, employers and professionals working alongside bereaved people.
This webinar is open to anyone, both in London and beyond. Register now.
