Mental health and therapy

Suicide prevention

When caring for someone with a mental health diagnosis, we recognise and appreciate the need to work closely with family and friends who are able to provide ongoing care and support to people experiencing suicidal thoughts and feelings.

Our health workers include psychologists, psychiatrists, nurses and social workers, who provide a therapeutic plan to help the patient feel safe, supported and cared for with a focus on hope for the future.

Involving friends and family in care is an important part of our work, which includes supporting and connecting with people to ensure they do not feel alone.

Our aim is to work in partnership with you, your family and friends to help identify and develop early and appropriate intervention.

If you are considering suicide, call Lifeline on 13 11 14.
