Maybe you have come to this site after receiving a terminal diagnosis. Perhaps you are close to death. Or perhaps you are just curious and want to know more.
We aim to provide you with information and tools so you can educate and equip yourself, your family and the people around you with the means to have a better conversation about death and dying.
Go Gentle Australia was established to help relieve the distress, helplessness and suffering experienced by Australians with incurable or terminal illnesses, their families and carers. We argue for the right of all Australians to have a choice about what happens to them at the end of their lives and not to be forced, when they are at their most vulnerable, into cruel and avoidable suffering.
You may face a range of emotions that you have anticipated or you may respond entirely differently: there is no right or wrong. What is important, is that if you feel you need someone to talk to, you reach out.
