“Through my own experience, I know how important talking about how you are feeling can be”

Dr Amir says:

“Through my own experience after my dad's death and my work as a GP, I know how important talking about how you are feeling after a bereavement can be.

“My main advice to people who are supporting someone through grief would be to continue to ask ‘how are you feeling?’ or ‘how are you coping?’, rather than focusing on asking questions around the person's death.

“I think people are often worried about saying the wrong thing, and you can just simply ask 'what can I do to help?' to open up the conversation.”
