StandBy Support After Suicide is a national, federally funded, free service currently operating in several regions across Australia. AnglicareSA provides the service to the whole of SA Country. StandBy is a suicide bereavement response service that provides a 24-hour coordinated community crisis response to families, friends and associates who have been bereaved through suicide.
StandBy is available to people, families, friends, associates, witnesses, schools, workplaces, groups and individuals, emergency and community responders and whole communities affected by suicide. This service is available to people bereaved by a recent or past suicide. Because people grieve in very different ways, support services may not be required for many weeks, months or even years in some cases. Whenever help is needed StandBy will be there to provide support and assistance.
We can also provide professional development sessions, brief information sessions and run community workshops – all without cost.
Tracey Wanganeen is our StandBy Coordinator for Country SA.
