Get support from a community chaplain
Chaplains are equipped with skills in pastoral care and theological training. They minister to people facing deeply distressing and traumatic situations, enabling them to better cope with periods of instability. A community chaplain from Chaplaincy Australia can meet with you, listen to your life’s struggles, and refer you to professional support services.
