Grief and Bereavement Support

EACH, in partnership with the Australian Centre for Grief and Bereavement, run a group once a month for people who have been affected by a bereavement as a result of the bushfires. This group has been running for several months and there is ample room for more to attend.

The groups are held at EACH in Ringwood once a month on a Thursday evening.

If you are already seeing a counsellor, psychologist or other support person it is still perfectly OK for you to attend this group as well … People can often gain excellent stuff from participating in a group that will complement the one-to-one work - they often do vicarious learning by hearing the journeys/work that other people have taken.

Similar groups are also run for children who have experienced a bereavement through the bushfires.

For more information on these groups please contact either Rosie Petschack or I on 9871 1800. Or email jbowker@each.com.au or rpetschack@each.com.au.
