Marie Holmager has repeatedly used Sorglinjen, because she since the death of his father in between feel hopelessness.
Since The National Sorgcenter established Sorglinjen in January, it flowed in with inquiries.
Sorglinjen scored around 1900 submissions from people who have been in deep grief over having lost a close and has been in need to find hope. As Sorglinjen opened was the original goal of 1000 contacts.
the volunteers of The Sorglinjen have even tried to lose a close.
- To speak with a, who themselves have lost, is actually typical with to give hope that it may be possible to get a good life again, even if the worst thing imaginable has happened. It is the volunteers living examples, says Preben Engelbrekt, who is the director of The National Sorgcenter.
Studies from The National Sorgcenter shows that eight out of ten survivors miss someone to talk to about it, they have lost and miss.
- Friends and one's network is typically very good to help right after his or her death. But after some months, there are many survivors who will be greeted by a wall of silence.
- It allows many calling to the us, because it is typically in the months after, that they need to talk with someone about it, says Preben Engelbrekt.
She lost her father six and a half years ago.
- All can very well understand that you are upset about it. But people who have lost, can understand it in a different way.
- So it helps to be able to talk with someone who understands the hopelessness you sometimes feel, says Marie Holmager.
It is also something that the 47-year-old Trine Larsen as a volunteer at the Sorglinjen can recognize. She suffered the loss of a daughter to suicide in 2016.
- Many of the people I talk with, expresses the loneliness after their loss. They are alone with their grief, and it is recurrent in the many calls.
- the Grief never disappear from me, but it can be a help for me to help others when I share the emotions I have been through, says Trine Larsen.
