To navigate successfully through life following loss, I believe it important to seek professional guidance and support. Sadly, I found the process of seeking appropriate support for my children difficult, whilst navigating through my own grief. I just needed the piece of mind, that my children were being appropriately and well supported, whilst at school. This did not happen for quite some time. Not an experience, I would wish another grieving parent to have. Welfare must to supported in order for a child to succeed within the education system. Thankfully, there are professionals to catch us and point us in the right direction. The information should be more accessible, to minimise damage non professionals may cause. With the right support, families experiencing the most traumatic of losses can not just survive but learn how to thrive and find happiness again.
