Posted On
April 14, 2021

StandBy is a national support organisation for people who have been impacted by suicide – family, friends, colleagues, witnesses and others in the community. It recognises that suicide often creates complex feelings for those left behind, and its impact can linger for a long time.

StandBy services include:

  • Extensive resources for people bereaved by suicide, including fact sheets and e-books for children, adolescents and workplaces.
  • Telephone counselling (and face-to-face counselling in selected locations).
  • Help connecting with appropriate local support services.
  • Follow-up support for up to two years after a bereavement.
