Grief

If you or someone you care about is in crisis, seek help by doing one of the following:

  • Call 911
  • Go to your nearest emergency room
  • Call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-TALK
  • Call the Behavioral Health Response Team at 845-517-0400

Every person’s experience of grief is unique. It may depend on the person’s relationship with the individual who has died, the circumstances of the death, social and other supports which are available to the bereaved person, previous experiences with death, and the person’s own abilities to cope with stress. There is no right or wrong way to grieve. With care and support from those around them, a person’s grief will lessen with time. However, if you or someone you care about is exhibiting these symptoms following a loss, they may need professional help.

• Symptoms of depression, including sleep difficulties and loss of appetite
• Poor academic performance and lack of interest in school and other activities
• Withdrawal from family and friends
• Increase in risky behaviors, such as drug and alcohol use, fighting, and sexual experimentation
