South Australian Suicide Postvention Project Report to Mental Health Services Department of Health

Suicide postvention represents an opportunity for mental health services, social services and
other health services to collaborate to enhance the quality of care provided to those persons
who become bereaved due to the suicide of someone they know. Suicide postvention has
recently been recognised as an important part of suicide prevention because those bereaved
through suicide are a high risk group for mental ill health and suicide.
