About the program
StandBy Support After Suicide is Australia’s leading suicide postvention program dedicated to assisting people and communities bereaved or impacted by suicide. The program offers coordinated evidence-based support and resources (including connections to local services and groups) that is individualised for each person’s unique circumstance. This support is continued for up to two years to ensure those that engage with StandBy are not alone and receive ongoing support. StandBy builds community preparedness and resilience through extensive training to community and professional groups to ensure effectiveness and that duplicated effort is avoided. The program is also ideally placed to offer a settings-based approach, providing group support after a suicide for schools, workplaces and community groups.
We are seeking a Regional Co-ordinator for this new initiative, the StandBy After Suicide program. This involves establishing and implementing the StandBy program in Eastern Melbourne and Gippsland
