What is the Way Back Support Service?
People who have attempted suicide or experienced a suicidal crisis often experience severe distress in the days and weeks immediately afterwards, and they are at high risk of attempting again.
The Way Back Support Service, developed by Beyond Blue and delivered by Coast & Country Primary Care, supports them through this critical risk period.
A Suicide Prevention Support Coordinator contacts the person within one business day of receiving their referral and tailors a program for up to three months after discharge from hospital. This program is built on personal connection and integration with community services.
