Lifeline services in Ellenbrook

FROM Thursday, December 7 Lifeline WA’s Prevention Services – specialised separation and bereavement counselling – will be available in Ellenbrook.

Lifeline WA’s separation and bereavement counselling is already available to families and individuals, including children, at the Northbridge and Whitfords locations, and can additionally be accessed statewide via telephone and video call.

The introduction of the Ellenbrook location will ensure more people can access face-to-face separation and bereavement counselling in the greater Perth region.

It also highlights Lifeline WA’s continued commitment to supporting vulnerable populations as part our mission to support people in crisis and create opportunities for emotional well-being.

Lifeline WA chief executive officer Lorna MacGregor said separation and bereavement counselling were an integral part of Lifeline WA’s services.

“Marital separation, divorce, and bereavement are highly stressful events in a person’s life,” she said.

“Providing prevention services to those most at risk relieves distress and empowers people to make positive life decisions.”

Each year, approximately 14,000 parents separate in Western Australia affecting about 13,300 children.

She said grieving was a normal process, with no standard time limit and no right or wrong way to feel with everyone learning to cope in their own way.

Referrals to Lifeline WA’s separation and bereavement counselling can be made directly by individuals or facilitated by an agency by contacting 9261 4444 or emailing reception@lifelinewa.org.au
