Group of people listening intently

Comfort and support from those who understand

Facilitated by a qualified Griefline counsellor

Integrating psychoeducation, evidence-based interventions and the personal experiences of the group to normalise grief, navigate emotional distress, reduce isolation and foster resilience.

Our group program draws upon the emotional benefits of peer support, in conjunction with evidence-backed information to help reduce the stigma that can be associated with grief, and building an understanding that each person experiences grief in a different way.
