AARP: Coping with Grief and Loss

Association for Death Education and Counseling – is one of the oldest interdisciplinary organizations in the field of dying, death and bereavement.  Its nearly 2,000 members include a wide array of mental and medical health personnel, educators, clergy, funeral directors and volunteers.

https://www.tuck.com/sleep-and-grief/ Our primary mission is promoting awareness of sleep health, and as part of that, we’ve researched how grief can cause insomnia, which groups are at the highest risk for sleep disorders during the grieving process, and how to deal with insomnia without resorting to habit-forming substances during an emotionally difficult time.
