Tips for your support team
Sally Douglas and Imogen Carn are co-hosts of the podcast Good
Mourning and creators of the Instagram account
Sally (36) and Imogen (35) met at a grief support event after both suddenly losing their mothers only months apart. They instantly bonded over their shared losses, finding healing through their connection.
Struck by the lack of resources that spoke about grief in an honest yet uplifting way - about the brain fog, exhaustion, anxiety and host of other elements - Sal and Im decided to do something about it and launched Good Mourning in September 2020. Their fresh take and authentic experience quickly resonated, finding an engaged audience and growing into an online community of nearly 100,000 fellow grievers worldwide.
In addition to their work on Good Mourning, Sally is a life coach and senior communications consultant and Im has worked on some of Australia's leading reality television shows as well as caring for her four-year-old daughter.
