Grief and the Grieving Process: Grief is a normal yet complex phenomenon, which has been broadly explained through the Descriptive and Process theories. The former depict the phenomenology of the grief process in a basic and descriptive way, but lack an explanation as to why or how grief responses occur. The latter, provides a model for the psychological mechanisms underlying grief and investigates the purposes behind these mechanisms (Barbato & Irwin, 1992).

Helpguide was launched in 1999, following the suicide of Robert and Jeanne Segal’s daughter, Morgan. We believe that Morgan’s tragedy could have been avoided if she had had easy access to supportive health information. Helpguide is focused on providing articles that are motivating, balanced, and ad-free—easy to look at, easy to understand, and above all useful.
