Support After Suicide Toolkit:
Postvention Response for Site Owners and Leadership

Developed in conjunction with Lifeline Australia, the StandBy Support After Suicide Toolkit for Site Owners and Leadership provides guidance and timely evidence based postvention support, in response to a suicide death that occurs in a public place.

This document can be used by management and those in leadership roles as a guide to complement existing workplace policy and procedures; to help inform decision making in the event of a public death by suicide.

The downloadable and printable mini resources will support those who engage with the resource, to support people who are impacted and bereaved by suicide onto further postvention support.
