Loss of a loved one: who can help you?

No matter how we consider it, the disappearance of a loved one sounds like a thunderclap. To help you overcome the grief, some associations and platforms exist.

Other associations (such as Favec) offer interviews with volunteers who themselves have been in mourning as well as tax, legal and administrative support.

Support or self-help groups
They bring together 5 to 10 people in a framework and at a defined rate (once or twice a month for example) in order to exchange with others who are experiencing the same situation. Living in mourning, Dialogue & Solidarity or Empreintes in Paris / Île-de-France offer discussion groups.

The mourning cafes
It is a one-off event around a theme, a time of exchange where each participant is invited to express themselves and / or listen to the experience of others. Information from Favec or Dialogue & Solidarité.
