Help & Resources 

When a child dies, our world as we know is turned upside down.  It is natural to feel confusion, pain, hurt, regret, guilt, and more negative emotions which can overwhelm and dominate your life.  When you feel that your daily routine or general well-being is in jeopardy, please reach out for help.  Many of us who have experienced the loss of a loved one, especially a child, have found that seeking help is a healthy way grieving.  Reading up on grief support strategies or speaking to a friend or religious may be beneficial but sometimes enlisting the services of trained counsellors can accelerate the healing journey. 


Here are some resources which you may find useful.  Please explore these organisations to ensure that they fit what you need (in terms of social support and cost), and that you are comfortable with the personalities involved.  Call or meet if necessary and enquire about payment, although some may be heavily subsidized..

There are many resources online for those who wish to understand their grief. Some links which we have found helpful, based on the Catholic-Christian faith are as follows:

Loyola Press : Grief Resources

Living & Healing with Grief (Waterloo Catholics)

St Jude Grief Support


The Child Bereavement Support Singapore , an independent peer-support group for bereaved parents, has assembled many books, articles which may be helpful to you. These may not be faith based but offer a comprehensive understanding of how to cope with grief and plan your way forward in living well again.
