The death of your child is an unacceptable tragedy and it can take a long time before you regain any sense of normality in your life. At The Compassionate Friends you will find the special understanding of those who have "been there".There is no pressure to talk or not talk, cry or not cry, just a chance to be yourself, to have time-out.We offer a safe haven, a listening and understanding ear, a place where you can let down the mask, and if you wish, talk about your son or daughter, brother or sister who has died. We don’t promise a miracle cure, just comfort and the consolation and hope that broken threads can be picked up again. www.compassionatefriendsvictoria.org.au
