Grief, Memorials, and Loss through COVID-19: Resources for caring while physical distancing

The COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting physical distancing measures pose a unique challenge regarding the ability for people to respond to loss and grief. In partnership with the Canadian Mental Health Association of Hamilton, researchers from McMaster University will develop an interactive online resource to support people dealing with grief and loss during the Covid-19 pandemic. The resource will include examples of how to build community capacity for expressing care, sympathy and empathy and for coping with grief and loss in this time of social/physical distancing. These resources can be shared by health professionals, social service providers, and public and private institutions and the general public.
