Break O’Day Community Support After Suicide Loss Directory
To build a long term & sustainable response to loss through suicide YOU ARE needed:
The After Suicide Register is designed to support any resident of the Break O'Day or Bicheno area that has been impacted by a loss to suicide.
A vital part of the Community Suicide Response Plan was the development of a Community Suicide Response Directory to capture the many, often hidden, assets our community is able to offer to support someone impacted by suicide loss. Everyone can play a part in this plan. Supports such as basic material aid - cooking, transport and shopping, a load of wood, social support, through to health and psychological care. Individuals and services listed on our directory are accessed as needed and pre-agreed. If you would like to register to offer your support please know that you can choose for your details to remain confidential.

Background to Community Suicide Response Committee:
The Break O’Day Local Government area has been selected as one of 13 National Suicide Prevention trial sites, identified to implement a systems approach to suicide to reduce suicide and self-harm. The purpose of the trial is to see how multiple activities can be implemented in a coordinated and collaborative way (a systems approach) at a local level to build community capacity to reduce suicide.
A major strategy of this Trial has been the establishment of a locally embedded Community Suicide Response Plan that provides a detailed, coordinated and collaborative response in the event of loss to suicide.
A local committee has been established, comprising senior personnel from a wide cross section of the community, to oversee a coordinated response in the event of future loss to suicide. The majority of these committee members are local people and may be known to you. The Committee will remain in place post trial funding and, it is envisaged, will become a critical community support following a suicide.
