Welcome to the NALAG Centre for Loss & Grief Website
Grief touches all of us at some point in our lives. It is the ultimate price we pay for love. Many of us deal with our own losses in our own way and in turn come to face our new realities without our loved one, a marriage breakdown, or the loss of a job. For some though, the loss is so unbearable and impacts their well-being to a point where assistance is required. Grief can quickly become a serious health issue for some, and it is OK to ask for help in these sistuations.
The NALAG Centre for Loss and Grief is a not for profit organisation with Centres and Branches in Dubbo (Head Office), Mudgee, Mid North Coast, Bellingen/Nambucca Shires and Sydney (Telephone). At the NALAG Centre for Loss and Grief we provide FREE loss and grief support to those who are grieving.
The NALAG Centre provides quality professional education and training in the area of loss, grief and bereavement. Throughout the year, we schedule workshops and we are also available to conduct customised training upon request.
To promote awareness of loss and grief in the community, NALAG conducts events such as Grief Awareness Month, The Walk towards Hope for Suicide Prevention and the Remembering the Babies Ceremony. Our various Centres and Branches also hold community awareness events and education sessions.
NALAG has announced new Education and Training coming up next month. See our Education and Training Page for more information and registration.
