Promoting Grief Awareness

One of NALAG's important roles is to promote the good management of grief following a loss. Without the correct intervention, grief can quickly become a more serious health issue. Recognising the grief reactions, symptoms and learning helpful and meaningful ways to enhance wellbeing following loss is one of NALAG's main objectives.

 

One of the main ways that NALAG achieves this objective is to hold various community events throughout the year to promote grief awareness.

Together with our three annual key awareness events (see left), NALAG also offers community talks throughout the year on Grief and Loss. These can be arranged for your organsiation free or at a nominal cost.

NALAG also produces a number of FREE resources including the brochures, Bereavement Buddy eNewsletter, NALAG News Printed newsletter and the Grandpa's Hat Children's Book.
