Forum membership is open to anyone residing in Australia.
Our online moderated forums give people the opportunity to read about other people’s stories in managing and working through their experiences of grief and loss, while also providing the opportunity to actively interact and share their own journey.
Our online moderated forums are now accessible 24 hours a day for people experiencing grief and loss, isolation and loneliness and complicated grieving due to stressful or traumatic events.
Dedicated forums are also available for first responders and people affected by natural and human disasters such as bushfires, floods and COVID-19.
The forums give everyone in remote, rural, regional or metropolitan areas an opportunity to connect with an emotionally supportive community, share experiences and find hope.
It is a place to be accepted and understood by others who can empathise with you. You can feel free to remember your loved one and tell us about your grief journey.
If you are experiencing crisis, or are worried about yourself or someone else, please contact Lifeline by phoning
