How long does the grieving process take?

Every person is different and so is their grief. Each person will follow a different path toward healing. Although there is no right or wrong amount of time to complete the grieving process, many experts agree that it is not unusual to take at least a year to move through the grieving process. The duration of the mourning process can also be influenced by your relationship to the deceased, the amount of support you receive, and other factors.

As more time passes, your grief will begin to recede to some extent. However, if you find your grief is persistent and disruptive to the point it impacts your daily functions, please seek counseling.
