A Guide to UConn Library Resources on Wellness and Self-Care

Loss and Grief

Everyone deals with grief and loss at some point in their lives, and these feelings may be even more prevalent in the era of COVID-19.   As a child, one may experience loss after a friend moves far away or a beloved pet passes away.  As a teenager and adult we experience breakups and strife in relationships.  And then there is the loss of a loved one-- which proves to be the deepest loss.  This page offers library resources on loss and grief.
