Any loss can cause grief, and Griefline is here to help

We all experience the loss of someone or something important to us at some point in our lives. Grief is a natural human response to this loss, and everyone’s experience of it is different. 

While many associate grief with the death of a loved one, other forms of loss can result in grief, including:

  • You have experienced the loss of a beloved pet
  • You have lost your home, business or livelihood
  • You are feeling isolated and alone in your loss
  • You are experiencing isolation and loneliness due to the loss of a loved one or connection with your family or community
  • You are supporting a recently bereaved friend or family member
  • You are experiencing a relationship break-up
  • You are experiencing a sense of grief after your own or a loved one’s health diagnosis
  • You are grieving the loss experienced due to natural disasters
  • You’re grieving due to your children moving out of home
  • You are grieving a miscarriage or inability to conceive

Are you ready to talk? We are ready to listen. Call now 1300 845 745
