Reading Time: 4 minutes I have seen people who are hurt and depressed spiral into crippling depression rather suddenly, losing their energy and desire to live. A lot of people face depression—at least 264 million people world-wide—and that statistic is pre-pandemic (WHO, 2020).

Reading Time: 3 minutes When I started my nursing career back in 2001, I was a mature student but I didn’t feel that way faced with individuals, families and communities during their most emotive times due to death and thereafter grief.
