Many are caring for elderly family members and children, have loved ones who are dealing with chronic or life-threatening illnesses, have suffered pregnancy loss or cancelation of fertility treatments, and are struggling with employment or financial strain,” explains Cynthia Coffelt, LCSW, MPH, and Maven Mental Health Provider. “Any one of these stressors is enough to trigger grief response, let alone managing several.”
