One of the initiatives we have organised is to fund Ballarat Hospice Care Inc. to deliver a three week program to address the issue of grief and bereavement, a contributor to problem gambling. People deal with grief and loss in their own unique way but sometimes it can become overwhelming. The large majority of us have little training or knowledge on how best to deal with our emotions, and how to move forward. Liz Dawson from Ballarat Hospice Care Inc. is conducting the first of a three week program that deals with grief and loss. The program is open to any member of the public, not just those with a connection to Ballarat Hospice. It will have a particular focus on those affected by sudden death, for whom there is often little guidance and support for family and friends. If grief is not managed well it can result in relationship breakdowns, substance abuse, problem gambling and even suicide. Unaddressed grief could be a underlying problem for clients, friends or family.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
