Our Attempted Suicide Aftercare Program can provide support to understand what led to this suicide attempt and develop ways to keep yourself safe when things feel overwhelming.

ASAP is for people aged 15+ who have attempted suicide, self-harm or have suicide ideation. It is a free, state-wide service for people who are not receiving ongoing public Mental Health Service (MHS) case management. ASAP is also for friends and family who are supporting someone who has attempted suicide.

The service can:

  • Provide support to understand what led to this suicide attempt and develop ways to keep yourself safe when things feel overwhelming
  • Provide intensive follow-up support
  • Respond to immediate needs and provide ongoing support for up to six months
  • Connect you with other services and supports

If you are a friend or family member who are supporting someone who has attempted suicide, our ASAP Family Resource booklet will share ways of supporting your loved one, preparing a safety plan and providing contacts for local services and supports

 

 

ASAP is a free service.

For more information, please call us on 1800 243 232

Client stories

After engaging in the ASAP program, Jake said that his mental health significantly improved and he is no longer in distress. Jake believes that he is no longer at risk of further self-harm, and he utilises the safety plan he developed with his workers to addresses the stressors he identified to remain safe.

“You have helped a lot, I have been able to talk things through with you and keep myself safe.”

After accessing the ASAP program, Frank said that his suicidal ideation had ceased and he has no longer has concerns about safety to self, and his overall wellbeing has improved.

“Being able to talk to you has helped keep me safe because you don’t judge me and you say stuff that actually helps, so thank you for doing a great job.”

Charlotte said that support from her ASAP worker and a sense of being able to talk through issues and emotions with someone understanding and non-judgemental, was extremely helpful to keeping her safe.

“Thank you so much for helping me get through the hardest time of my life!”
