There are many things that can cause someone to have grief — "a feeling of sadness or loss".
Grief is a normal part of living, but sometimes it's helpful to work with a professional to help you get through a difficult period. The behavioral health staff at our family medicine clinics are trained in grief support.
In a family medicine setting, we work with you on overcoming your grief and help with other health problems you may have.
If you or someone you know is suffering from grief that seems overwhelming, we can help you get back on track with your life.
Our Family Medicine doctors and staff help their patients take care of conditions like this every day so if you would like to seek help, find a UPMC family medicine clinic near you and then contact us to make an appointment with one of our grief counselors.
See our patient education resources or Health Library for more information about coping with grief.
