Don't grieve alone. Get help from a grief support hotline in Australia

If you're experiencing intense and unbearable pain after a significant loss, you're not alone. You may not know where to turn or how to cope. Fortunately, there are 16 hotlines that offer help with grief and loss in Australia. If you're experiencing any of these symptoms, consider getting some support:

  • Feeling emotionally unstable, like you're on an emotional rollercoaster
  • An inability to find pleasure in the activities you used to enjoy
  • Difficulty admitting to yourself that the person or thing you lost is really gone
  • Relief if your lost loved one had a painful or debilitating illness
  • If you are religious, you may start to question your faith
  • Anger and blame directed toward yourself, others, or God for not preventing the loss
  • Withdrawal from others and wanting to be alone
  • Complete shock and feeling that the loss is not real

Everybody experiences and copes with grief differently. It's normal to feel several emotions in one day. It can be confusing to go through all of this on your own.
