When to refer: A note on providing the right level of support to the bereaved
This workshop sets out the 3 levels of bereavement complexity that a grieving person may experience.
The 3 levels of bereavement support:
Level 1 bereavement is often managed with the support of friends and families. The majority of people (around 90%) will require support at this level.
All health and social care staff should feel confident in providing level 1 support. This training is designed to enable that confidence for everybody.
Level 2 bereavement requires the support of services that have staff specially trained in talking to the bereaved, this includes many local charities that provide support free of charge. In Hampshire, you can find directories for many of these organisations here:
