Dying to Know Day August 8

Dying to Know Day, on August 8, is all about fostering deep conversations about the one thing all humans have in common — death. After reading a book called “Dying to Know: Bringing Death to Life,” an Australian organization called The Groundswell Project decided to dedicate an entire day to destigmatizing the topic of dying and educating others on how to die in a way that stays true to themselves and their wishes. The hope is that we’ll all accept and plan on death so that we can live even better in the present moment.

CarerHelp is a platform that provides trustworthy information and resources to Australians who are caring for a family member or friend who has a serious illness and is at the end of life. CarerHelp Diversity has a focus on improving access and reach for diverse populations of Australian carers and is developing resources for culturally and linguistically diverse communities, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and people who identify as LGBTIQ+.
