It's National Grief Awareness Week for the first time in the UK from 2nd December to 8th December.
It is driven by The Good Grief Trust, the UK's leading umbrella charity, which brings together all UK bereavement services, support organisations and helplines in one central database for both the bereaved and those working with them.
The aim of National Grief Awareness Week is to try to normalise grief, and get people talking about it on a national platform.
There is a taboo when it comes to grief and those who suffer it, causing a lot of people to suffer in silence. The Good Grief Trust is trying to change that, to allow people to seek the help they need when dealing with bereavement.
Events are being held across the country to raise awareness, visit www.nationalgriefawarenessweek.org/events/ to see if there are any near you.
