Because of the significant number of deaths by Covid-19 pandemic, mourning is more present in people's lives and is increasing concern and professional help service to people facing this process at the moment.

"The mourning process is important, necessary and restorative. Mourning is like an emotional healing of a significant loss. Each person will live in a different way. At the moment we live, there are variables that can hinder the mourning process as there is a feeling that we could have done something different. This sense of impotence, of injustice are elements that can interfere with the process of mourning, as not being able to be together, not being able to have a decent ritual, "said Adriana.
