It’s never easy to deal with grief, especially when the grief is associated with the death of a close loved one. Different people react differently to grief so some are able to overcome it quickly while others take their time and need some outside help. Fortunately, there are a number of great online resources that can help people recover and some of them are listed below:

1. Open to Hope

Open to Hope is a great online platform that provides different resources to help deal with grief. There are a number of books and articles available on the website that help people deal with grief. In addition to that, the website also offers an online community so grieving individuals can interact with people in similar positions and draw comfort from them.

2. National Alliance for Grieving Children

Children experience grief differently than adults and sometimes the adults surrounding them just don’t know how to help them through it. The NAGC provides several great resources to help parents and guardians and also has a wide network of volunteers and counselors ready to provide assistance.

3. Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors

TAPS is specifically geared towards military families and helps people who have lost a loved one while they were serving in the military. The platform provides peer-based support and has a large number of resources to help grieving families. The website has helped over 40,000 families to date.
