Difference Between Clinical and Peer Grief Support

Clinical grief support involves talking to a professionally licensed mental health professional (also known as a therapist, counselor, or psychologist) who is trained to help with grief and underlying mental/emotional issues (e.g., depression, bipolar disorder, etc.). Some therapists specialize in grief, while others take a more generalized approach or have other specialties (marriage and family therapy, etc.). They’re also a potentially good resource for people who are having a tough time with what is known as “acute grief” which makes it difficult to maintain daily functioning and routines. Peer grief support involves talking to someone who has experienced grief themselves and is trained to help others who are going through a similar loss. They provide emotional support, compassion, and practical guidance to help people cope with their grief and engage in the healing process. It is possible to do both and benefit greatly; it isn’t required that you choose one or the other. It’s important to assess which option is best for you.
