Supporting those bereaved by suicide

More than 3,000 Australians
take their lives each year

Postvention Australia is a national, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to helping people bereaved by suicide.

Our Work

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.

Looking for a service to support you, or someone you know?

Postvention Australia's Service Directory aims to link those bereaved by suicide with support services in a centralised online location. The Directory informs the bereaved and support organisations about the available services in their location, and can be filtered by type of service, age and gender groups, type of lived experience, and more categories.
