    Griefline is now offering online and in-person support groups facilitated by a qualified Griefline counsellor. 💖

    These 4-week groups integrate psycho-education and evidence-based interventions along with the personal experiences of members of the group to;
    – normalise grief
    – navigate emotional distress
    – reduce isolation
    – foster resilience …and more…

    Like the forums, the group program draws upon the benefits of peer support and develops an understanding of the unique quality of our grief experiences.

    ** please note – due to current funding;
    – the ONLINE support groups are available to people living in New South Wales & Victoria
    – the face-to-face support groups are held in Moorabbin, Victoria and are available to people living in the catchment area of the South Eastern Melbourne Primary Health Network (SEMPHN).

    Head to the Griefline website for more info (including a map of the SEMPHN) and to register: https://griefline.org.au/get-help/support-groups/

    Dear @earlwalk

    I’m so sorry to hear that you are feeling so terrible after the death of your partner. It sounds like it is unimaginably hard at the moment. So many emotions can come up and although that is a normal process of grieving I know how hard it can sometimes feel to imagine that it will ever get any better. But I also know that we do find ways to cope and even start to feel hope again, in time.

    If you would like to talk please reach out to one of our phone support volunteers by calling 1300 845 745 (6am – midnight, 7 days a week). Or you can also reach out to Lifeline on 13 11 14.

    If you’d like to find out about the next support group you might like to contact the intake officer at [email protected].

    Take care.

    Please join this wonderful support service. I can actually see some rays of sunshine breaking through the darkness but only because of the support, education and gentleness of this group. I am far from fixed but feeling braver and aware of what I need to support myself on this tough journey. 🙂

    Thank you for this. My partner died 5 weeks ago. As Monika wrote “I feel very lost and anxious without him”.

    I would like to join an on line community. My husband passed away 4 months ago and I am struggling coming to terms with his death. I feel very lost and anxious without him and thought it might help if I connect with people.
