How do people cope with the death of someone they love? When a family member, a friend, or someone in our community dies, the grief that comes with it can be a long and complicated process that comes in many forms. This 2013 animation about The Grieving Process: Coping with Death, from the now-dormant WellCast channel, discusses the difficult subject.

There is no right or wrong way to deal with the loss of a loved one. The grieving process is rough—and it’s different for everyone. It’s not just a matter of coping with a loss, but coping with change—and that takes time.
