Postvention Australia’s vision is to reduce the impact of suicide by establishing a network that provides best practice Postvention information and services, holistic, physical, emotional and spiritual support, comfort and understanding for the health and well-being of all Australians affected by a suicide death.
Postvention Australia’s mission is to build a strong suicide Postvention sector that prevents suicide and minimises harm by supporting all people affected by a suicide death and those who support them. We will achieve this through:
- Making clear pathways to support all those affected by a suicide death.
- Promoting best practice information, education and research about suicide Postvention in the public arena.
- Assisting individuals, communities, volunteers, service providers, educators, researchers, media, and government and other bodies to support those bereaved through the provision of information and networking and education.
- Creating cultural change in de-stigmatising suicide death and raising public awareness of ways to support the bereaved.
