Griefline

Free grief support

Griefline works with anyone experiencing grief and loss across Australia.

Everyone grieves differently. Your grief is as unique as your own fingerprint. However, while often immensely painful, grief is our natural healing process in response to loss.

Grief comes and goes, it can be intense and then manageable, predictable and then uncontrollable. It might be brought on by a recent loss or a historical one, be triggered by an anniversary or the dread of an approaching milestone.

Griefline is not a crisis-support or emergency support service

If you are in an emergency situation or are at immediate risk of harming yourself or others, please call 000.

If you are experiencing crisis, or are worried about yourself or someone else, please contact Lifeline by phoning

13 11 14 or by texting 0477 13 11 14

Kids Helpline is available 24/7 to support young people aged between five and 25, call 1800 551 800

GriefLink

GriefLink provides information for people who are dealing with grief caused by the death of someone close to them, and for those who are supporting them. The death of someone we know is something we all face at some time in our life, and grief is a normal reaction to this loss.

The impact of grief is often underestimated, and so it can be hard to know what is ‘normal’ and what you can do to cope or help others to cope. GriefLink can help you find information about different experiences of grief, the feelings and reactions you or those you care for might be experiencing, and things that can help.

GriefLink does not provide counselling support for those grieving. If such support is required, you can find links to other organisations who provide support for the bereaved at the bottom of each GriefLink page. If the matter is urgent, please contact LifeLine (13 11 14), Beyond Blue (1300 22 4636) or Kids Helpline (1800 55 1800) for immediate help.

The information on the site has been compiled and reviewed by a broad range of professionals and consumers in South Australia with knowledge and experience in the area of loss and grief.
