How To Grieve with Sal and Im from Good Mourning

Sally Douglas and Imogen Carn describe their meeting as “a bit of a love story”. The friends connected in their early thirties at a support group after their mums died suddenly. They’ve since created the podcast and Instagram community Good Mourning ­– that’s mourning with a ‘u’ – where they open up the conversation around grief in a candid and relatable way, with a lot of honesty, warmth and, yep, even humour. Sal and Im’s mission? To comfort and support others going through grief and loss, just like they are. In this chat with WH commissioning editor Alex Davies, they talk about grief as a taboo topic and why they want to give it a voice; advice for coping as well as supporting; dealing with “grief bombs” in the supermarket; and how their experiences have changed them – in positive ways, too.
