When a person attempts suicide, it can be incredibly distressing and leave many people with all sorts of questions. The Guiding Their Way Back Support Groups provide carers with the skills and resources needed to respond following a suicide attempt, including an opportunity to access support, learn about others’ experiences, increase understanding of suicide and learn practical tips on how to support someone.
Guiding Their Way Back Support Groups and Information Sessions are now available in the Newcastle region through Relationships Australia NSW.
Scheduled dates include:
Information sessions will be followed by a four week Support Group program: Thursdays 31 August - 21 September, 5:00 - 7:00pm.
For more information and to register your interest in attending, please call (02) 4940 1500.
The support groups consist of a FREE information session, followed by a FREE four-week education and support group, held weekly for two hours per session. The groups provide information and support for people who care for someone recovering from a recent suicide attempt (within the last three months). This could be a child, partner, family member, friend or colleague.
