Welcome to MyGriefAssist™ - a place where you will find a broad range of helpful information on loss and grief. Coping with grief can be a daunting, difficult time in anyone's life. Whether you're looking to support someone you know or if you need help for yourself, you'll find something valuable here.
Grief is a very natural and normal reaction which we go through whenever our lives are challenged by change, loss, death. Yet, something so natural as grief is often not well understood in our society. This means people’s needs are often misunderstood leaving them feeling anxious, hurt and alone.
This website aims to bring you practical, contemporary information in the form of easy to read factsheets, book lists, videos and links to support services. For something a little different we have created our Inspirations - postcards, quotes, poetry, songs and movie titles - all themed around loss and grief, growth and new beginnings.
MyGriefAssist™ is a community service initiative by InvoCare - owner and operator of funeral homes, cemeteries and crematoria throughout Australasia and listed on the Australian Stock Exchange. InvoCare is well known for its commitment to family care, community engagement and funeral industry reputation. We are proud to bring you this website and trust that it truly does assist those who are grieving.
Our website is dynamic – new information will be regularly uploaded. We invite you to subscribe to MyGriefAssist™ in the sidebar (on the right of this page) to receive our news updates.

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.
Some people come in your life as blessings. Some come in your life as lessons.
I don't think of the misery, but of all the beauty that still remains.
