Resources for Those Affected by the 2009 Victorian Bushfires

The Australian Centre for Grief and Bereavement, with support from the Victorian Bushfire Appeal Fund, have developed a suite of grief information resources for those bereaved by the 2009 Victorian Bushfires. 

 These free, downloadable resources include:
  • A 24-page grief information booklet
  • Two A3-sized grief information posters
  • Four grief information brochures

To complement this suite, ACGB have also developed a DVD resource entitled My Grief Journey: Reflections of Those Bereaved by the 2009 Victorian Bushfires. In the DVD, five individuals reflect on their grief experiences following the tragic 2009 Victorian bushfires - how they were affected, what helped and how their grief has evolved over time. This DVD is available for purchase through the online shop.
