Coping with Grief

Portrait of an elderly sad man.

What would you recommend?

Jim is a 65-year-old Vietnam Veteran who works part-time in his state’s lottery office. He is divorced without children and lives alone. He has struggled with bouts of mild to moderate depression since his last relationships ended eight years ago. He came into the medical center with back pain (which he has never had before), difficulty sleeping, and fatigue.

What would you tell Jim and how would you implement a Whole Health approach to care?

Our Coping with Grief overview provides additional information about Jim and examines different types of grief to better understand potential causes and symptoms. We also offer Whole Health tools on specific topics to help empower patients and their families to overcome grief below.
