Lifeline: Suicide Bereavement Support Group Best Practice Project

Lifeline Australia received funding from the Commonwealth under the National Strategy for Suicide Prevention’s Community Grants Program to assist in strengthening the capacity of communities and individuals to make life-affirming choices to alleviate distress and promote well-being. Under Lifeline’s suicide prevention spectrum of care strategy, Lifeline sought to more fully address suicide bereavement care within the community and the quality of service provision. This project is a key workforce development strategy, building capacity in the workforce of those who support suicide bereaved. In so doing, the project aims to improve the quality of care provided to those who attend suicide bereavement support groups.
