HealthDay Reports: How to Cope With Your Grief During Coronavirus Pandemic
The American Psychological Association offers some tips on ways of coping with loss and grief.
FRIDAY, May 22, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- Grief is touching the lives of countless Americans as the COVID-19 death toll mounts.
The death of a family member or close friend can be among the most difficult things you'll have to deal with, so the American Psychological Association outlines ways of coping with that loss -- whether or not it is coronavirus-related.
