StandBy Support After Suicide

The NSW PSS is a suicide bereavement-specific service operating throughout Sydney, the Blue Mountains and the NSW South Coast. StandBy can make contact with you to offer crisis support in the initial stages and then will check in with you from time to time to see how you are going. They can offer resources for any support or assistance that you or your family might need at that time. The NSW PSS will provide the following:

  •  Face to face, phone and online support for individuals and families
  • Support with processes after a suicide such as coroners, funerals and media
  •  Specialised post-suicide counselling
  •  Peer support from trained staff who are also bereaved by suicide
  •  Information resources
  •  Support to access other local services
  •  One-on-one connections and support groups with other people bereaved by suicide
  • Training and workshops for communities and workplaces to build skills to respond to a suicide

All the services offered by the NSW PSS are free of charge.

The NSW Post-Suicide Support is a consortium led by StandBy with Jesuit Social Services Support After Suicide, Roses in the Ocean and University of New England.
