Struggling to cope with your grief?


Have you experienced an Epilepsy Related Death?

Are you struggling with your day to day life?

Do you feel isolated and that nobody understands?

Do you feel angry or guilty about what has happened?

Do you have tortuous ‘what if’ questions going round and round in your head?

Are you struggling to find meaning and purpose in your life?

Or would you just like to talk to someone?


If you answer yes to any of the questions above, why not give us a call on: 01235 772852 or Email support@sudep.org

Grieving is a normal reaction to the death of someone close, but if after some time those feelings disable you from managing your day to day life, or if they re-emerge after some time then you may benefit from speaking to someone from our support team.

The support team is here for you, irrespective of when you were bereaved; time is irrelevant to us, everybody deserves support no matter when the death occurred. Our support service is tailored to your individual needs. 

Speaking to someone soon after a death can be crucial, especially after a sudden unexpected death as you may have many questions. Getting the right information at this stage can be vital. 

If you have been bereaved for some time but feel that you can no longer talk to family and friends for many different reasons, we can help to fill that void. If you are supporting others this can be very exhausting and touch upon your own grief, looking after yourself is important; talking can help you do that.

There is no time limit to grief, don’t go through it on your own; if you feel the need to speak to someone please call the support team. Email support and counselling is also available.
