What is StandBy Support After Suicide?
StandBy is Australia’s leading suicide postvention program dedicated to assisting people and communities bereaved or impacted by suicide.
The StandBy program is focused on supporting anyone who has been bereaved or impacted by suicide at any stage in their life, including:
- First Responders
- 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.
StandBy Support After Suicide provides support across all regions of Western Australia, providing outreach to even the most hard-to-reach areas if needed.
