Although the vast majority of SCAD patients will recover fully or else get very much better with time and healing, tragically, some patients will have a SCAD so severe that there is no hope for survival.

Beat SCAD is committed to supporting bereaved families and we welcome all ideas and input from across the SCAD community so that we can develop both a support network and resources on this page that might provide some comfort to families coping with terrible loss.

In the meantime, we have compiled a list of resources that we hope you may find helpful:

BHF Bereavement information 

NHS Coping with bereavement

NHS Bereavement support services



Child bereavement 

Local council bereavement services

Bereavement advice 

If you find any additional useful resources please email us so that we can review them.  Please also let us know if you discover any broken web links.
