Struggling to cope with grief and loss? Hotline support is available in Ireland

The pain of grief and loss can make you want to withdraw from others and turn inwards. You may feel isolated. However, support is available. There are 14 hotlines in Ireland that support with grief and loss. If you're experiencing any of these symptoms, you may find relief from talking to someone who understands:

  • If you are religious, you may start to question your faith
  • Feeling guilty about not having prevented the death or loss
  • A feeling of abandonment by the person you lost
  • Increased anxiety about the future
  • Feeling numb and cut off from your own emotions
  • An inability to find pleasure in the activities you used to enjoy
  • Feeling like there's a pit in your stomach
  • A sense of hopelessness and a bleak outlook about life without your loved one

Grief and loss can bring up a diverse range of emotions. You may feel sad, angry, shocked, guilty, relieved, and scared all at once. This is a normal response but it can be confusing and make you feel alone.

It's okay to allow yourself to feel and experience your emotions without any shame. Nobody has the right to tell you how to feel because each person's grieving process is unique. For people in Ireland, getting proper support can provide a space to talk about your experience openly and help you feel less isolated.

Consider contacting a hotline in Ireland right away for free, private help with grief or loss.
