NSW post-suicide funding will prevent further suicides

Jesuit Social Services has entered a partnership, led by StandBy, to deliver our Support After Suicide program in NSW. The program helps people navigate the grief and trauma associated with suicide and prevent more people from taking their own lives. Funding for this service is being provided by the NSW government as part of their Towards Zero Suicides initiative.

Dr Louise Flynn, Manager of Support After Suicide says, “this funding will provide valuable support to up to 126,000 NSW residents, who are facing extremely challenging circumstances due to the suicide of a loved one, each year.” The program has more than 15 years of experience providing counselling, group work and peer support to people in metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria and will deliver services to NSW residents for the first time.
