The Australian Centre for Grief and Bereavement Counselling and Support Service provides a state-wide specialist bereavement service for individuals, children and families who need assistance following the death of someone close to them. The service offers face-to-face bereavement counselling most of which is office-based, as well as bereavement support programs such as support groups, information resources and remembrance events. In addition, the service provides advanced training for bereavement counsellors by providing a supervised internship for experienced practitioners. Counsellors at the service come from a variety of disciplines including social work, psychology and psychotherapy.
