Grief support

Information for the family members, carers and friends of people who have died from a dust disease.

It can be difficult to know when to get help in coming to terms with the death of your loved one.

Some people will find that the support of family, friends, workmates and community is enough. For others though, when grief feels relentlessly overwhelming, getting professional help might be appropriate.

This grief support fact sheet provides general information about grieving and where to reach out for help.  

“Grief is not a disorder, a disease or sign of weakness. It is an emotional, physical and spiritual necessity, the price you pay for love. The only cure for grief is to grieve.”
Earl Grollman, internationally recognised bereavement counsellor
