Who can I talk to?
The links below may be helpful. It might also help to talk to someone you trust. Even if they’re grieving too, it could help them to share their feelings.
All schools in Leeds offer support – talk to a member of staff who you trust.
Young people aged 11-19 years old can also go to the Bereavement Support Service at The Market Place in Leeds city centre to talk about what has happened. You can also use drawing and painting to share your feelings and do activities such as making memory jars or books.
Remember, people don’t ‘get over’ their grief, but over time and with support from others, you will hopefully learn to live with the grief and get back to some kind of normal life.
