StandBy is delivered by Wellways throughout the ACT and provides support for individuals, families, workplaces, and communities that have been affected by suicide.

This is offered free of charge at a time and place that best suits those requesting support. In addition, Wellways provide workshops and other training opportunities designed to increase awareness and understanding around responding to suicide bereavement.

The service is delivered to all communities contained in the ACT PHN network.

Wellways has operated in the ACT for over 10 years and has strong links with local services. The service partners with local community groups to help promote the program and support the individuals and families that we work with.
