StandBy - Support After Suicide
The StandBy program is focused on supporting anyone who has been bereaved or impacted by suicide at any stage in their life, including: individuals, families and friends, witnesses, first responders, and service providers. StandBy is accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week, providing free face-to face and/or telephone support at a time and place that is best for each individual. The program offers coordinated evidence-based support and resources (including connections to local services and groups) that is individualised for each person’s unique circumstance. This support is continued for up to two years to ensure those that engage with StandBy are not alone and receive ongoing support.
