PROMOTING EDUCATION & AWARENESS OF LONG-TERM GRIEF COMPLICATIONS
INFORMATION & SELF-ADVOCACY FOR MENTAL HEALTH AND WELL-BEING REGARDING DEATH, BEREAVEMENT, GRIEF AND LOSS
There are potentially thousands if not millions of people suffering with Complicated Grief/Persistent Complex Bereavement Disorder/Prolonged Grief Disorder (CG/PCBD/PGD) in the UK today.
The aims of this website are to increase awareness about CG/PCBD/PGD, to promote education and understanding regarding this syndrome and to help and encourage all those both directly and indirectly affected to seek assistance, guidance and support, wherever necessary and appropriate.
Please take your time, have a good look around and thanks very much for visiting.
This is a website designed specifically for adults suffering from Complicated Grief/Persistent Complex Bereavement Disorder/Prolonged Grief Disorder (CG/PCBD/PGD), their families, friends, neighbours, colleagues as well as those in wider communities affected by grief and it's range of long-term complications. It is also intended to provide a useful information resource for healthcare professionals, therapists and/or trainees engaged in various aspects of care delivery who are looking to develop their awareness and understanding in this area.
As a long-term suffer of CG/PCBD/PGD I was duly concerned that there was a distinct lack of information and support available to people suffering from these debilitating conditions. I was conscious of the fact that most of the information that was available on the Internet either consisted of journalistic articles written by people who had no direct experience of these disorders and/or clinical research literature written predominantly for medical professionals rather than for people directly and indirectly affected. Therefore, I decided to do something about it.
This is intended to be a freely accessible educational resource. It's very much a 'work in progress' in every sense, a website written and developed by a person trying to come to terms with various aspects of grief complications and ways in which these can best be understood. It's not intended to be exhaustive or authoritative, rather accessible and comprehensible to it's various target audiences.
Please note that the information presented on these web-pages is not a substitute for medical advice or for seeking professional help through therapy and/or other forms of treatment.
