Management of mourning and loss by people with mental disability

Puzzle S.E. is a social enterprise founded in 2015 aiming to bring a breath of fresh air in the field of social care provision in Greece. The Puzzle team is comprised of six experienced professionals with many years of experience in supporting people from vulnerable social groups and in managing organisations providing social services to people with disability.

Within the framework of the "Points of Support" programme, the activity “Management of mourning and loss by people with mental disability” was implemented; it contained educational activities and the development of educational material. Its goal was to support and prepare adults with mental disability and their families, as well as specialist caregivers, for the process and management of loss and mourning. The two handbooks were created following literature research and indirect participation of people with disability who shared personal experiences and feelings.

  • 2 handbooks/guides were created which were sent electronically to 50 organisations, they were posted on the Puzzle website and 400 copies were printed and distributed free of charge.
