Feeling sad after the death of a loved one or a tragic event is normal, but when symptoms of grief persist, you may need to seek grief counseling to help you progress. If you find it difficult to cope or concentrate, a counselor can talk, support and listen.

Depression is a serious but treatable medical condition that affects how a person feels, thinks, and acts. Though typically characterized by feelings of sadness, depression symptoms may appear as irritability or apathy. Tasks that seemed to be easy before may take longer because of lack of concentration. 

Anxiety is your mind and body’s natural response to events that are threatening. It’s important to keep in mind that experiencing anxiety is normal for everyone. However, when anxiety becomes severe, lasts for several weeks, and includes symptoms that keep you from doing things you usually would, it may be worth discussing with your health care professional. Anxiety symptoms are real—they are not just in your head. They can be treated, and they are nothing to be ashamed of.  Depression and Bipolar Alliance (DBSA)
