Closed petition Fund additional mental health support for those bereaved during the pandemic

The Government should research the effects of bereavement and social isolation during Covid restrictions, and fund dedicated counselling and ongoing mental health support for all those bereaved and grieving during the pandemic, whether due to Covid or other causes.

More details

After the death of my husband in January 2020, my family and I have first-hand experience of the effects of death, grief and the difficulties of coping without the normal face to face physical and emotional support from relatives and friends due to Covid restrictions. The number of deaths is still increasing and added to deaths from other causes that equates to many thousands of individuals without the necessary support needed to cope.
