When to use this resource

This brochure would be a helpful resource for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who are grieving. It would help to normalise these feelings, and give them ideas on where to go for help. This brochure would also be useful for the family or friends of people who are grieving as it would help them to understand what the person is going through and what they can do to help. Health workers could pass this brochure on to clients who are grieving, or the brochure could be made available in places where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people regularly visit.
