At Herriot, we provide specialist emotional wellbeing and bereavement support for both those using our hospice services and those who aren’t, via Just ‘B’, part of our family of services.
Just ‘B’ provides specialist support regionally and nationally. As well as 1-1 emotional wellbeing and bereavement support, we offer information and advice for professionals.
We are responsive to people’s faith, individuality, culture and community, and our bereavement support service is suitable for people experiencing any type of bereavement, including suicide, road traffic accident, infant and child deaths and terminal illness.
Bereavement is a normal and natural response to death and most people who experience it come through safely with the help of family and friends. But for some, who experience more complicated grief, they may need professional support. Bottled up, these emotions can have damaging psychological, emotional and physical consequences for individuals, their families and society as a whole. As well as 1-1 emotional wellbeing and bereavement support, we offer information and advice for professionals.Access support
