“You don’t have to explain yourself to others in the group...they understand how you feel.”


& grieving

We are here to help.

Suicide is the leading cause of death for Australians between the ages of 15 and 44. If you have lost someone to suicide you are not alone, we are here to help.

Our bereavement groups are run in partnership with Lifeline Tasmania.

Help us help more people in Tasmania.


We help the community by offering trust in an open safe space to talk on a monthly basis. With this trust comes guidance, with sessions run by both people with lived experience as well as clinical psychologists to offer professional guidance when necessary.

Helping the community for the last 6 years

Honouring Albert

Albie House exists to ensure that every Tasmanian that is experiencing grief, loss or distress due to suicide will feel supported and not lost and alone in their grief. This was Amanda Cuthbertson’s experience when her son Albert took his life at just 16. It doesn’t need to be your experience.

We want to build
a safe non-clinical house

Those at risk of taking their lives and those left in the wake of suicide often feel lost and alone. They can be across all ages and lines of work, including teachers, emergency departments and students. We aspire to build an inviting, safe, non-clinical house in Hobart to turn to and connect with others who understand, available 24/7.

"The support group gave me valued skills in coping with everyday life and facing difficult situations and enabled me to look forward and to learn to love and find joy in life again."

Why we need to talk about suicide prevention in Tasmania


 - Tasmania has one of the highest rates of suicide in Australia relative to our small population.

- 9 Australians die by suicide every day.

- Evidence tells us that supporting people who have lost someone through suicide helps prevent future suicides.

Our goals

Our goals


Short term, we want to grow the support available to those grieving after losing someone to suicide and open more support groups in more areas around Tasmania. We want to spread the word about our offering and become well known in the community so Tasmanians know there is a place to turn to or refer others in need.


Long term, our goal has always been to create a physical house located in Hobart that offers 24/7 non-clinical support to those at risk of taking their life and guidance to the services they require as an individual. This includes transportation to appointments while they reside at Albie House. 


News and updates


We are thrilled to announce we are now offering our support groups in Launceston. Albie House is now a statewide program thanks to our many supporters and we are looking forward to offering our services and support to even more people in Tasmania.
