What We Know

Since death is an imminent component of life, grief seems to be one as well. Statistically, there is an average of five long-term grieving people per death. With an approximate 2.5 million people dying each year in the United States, that combines to about 12.5 million people who begin to grieve a new death every year. Additionally, 40% of those who grieve, meet the criteria for major depression. Thankfully this percentage declines as time passes [1].

How It Affects Our World

There are emotional symptoms such as denial, anger and depression that one may experience as he or she is dealing with grief. Additionally, physical symptoms may emerge such as experiencing headaches, fatigue, nausea, insomnia, or weight gain/loss to name a few. There is no time frame for the grieving process and each individual, circumstance and culture play a factor in the process [2].
