The death of a loved one or close friend is painful, and may be difficult to cope with. On ways to manage grief, you can visit the Agency for Integrated Care (AIC) website here. Professional advice and support is available at your nearest Family Service Centre (FSC). FSCs are neighbourhood-based focal points for family resources, where individuals can turn to for family-related matters. FSCs promote the well-being of families and individuals.
More information on Family Service Centres are available at:
