Affected By Suicide

The StandBy Response Service was established by United Synergies in 2002, and has expanded as a national service working in 17 communities across Australia to assist people and communities affected by suicide. It is estimated that for every suicide between 10 and 100 people are directly affected (approximately 25,350 Australians) making suicide bereavement a population health problem. The National StandBy Response Service regularly contributes to the field of postvention nationally and internationally and is committed to building the knowledge and evidence base in the areas of suicide prevention, postvention and overall health and wellbeing.
