From immediate support, to practical help
People bereaved by suicide find it important to feel safe when speaking about their loss, freely and without fear of judgement. This guides our work, especially when we're creating resources, training and providing advocacy.
Who we are
We are driven by our members who are individuals, families and communities bereaved by suicide as well as service providers
Our focus is on sector leadership, advocacy, education, training and connection. Our vision is an Australia that compassionately responds and empowers those bereaved by suicide.

Leading and Advocating. As the leading voice for those bereaved by suicide, one of our key focus areas is to drive national and international advocacy work
Educating and Training. We promote best-practice education, training, resources and research about postvention to build the capability and capacity of Australia’s suicide bereavement services.
Connecting. We work to build an integrated national network of suicide postvention partners, service providers, educators and researchers that have access to best-practice, evidence-based information and resources.
