There are a number of groups within the community that are designed to help bereaved individuals. Sometimes people seek support beyond what is available through their own network of family and friends. Some people find support groups to be beneficial, while others might feel trepidation in joining such a group. Knowing what is available in Tasmania allows you to choose what might be appropriate.
