Open tender: provide support directly after a suicide attempt

Friday, 17 January 2020

SEMPHN is pleased to invite organisations to tender for the delivery of The Way Back Support Service in a consortium with Beyond Blue and Monash Health, within the Local Government Areas of City of Casey and City of Greater Dandenong.

The Way Back Support Service is designed to provide follow-up care, and practical support to individuals who present at Casey or Dandenong Hospital Emergency Departments after a suicide attempt or who are experiencing a suicidal crisis.

Knowing that suicide is the 14th leading cause of death in Australia, SEMPHN aims to reduce the impact of depression, anxiety and suicidality through The Way Back Support Service. 

About The Way Back Support Service

  • The service uses a non-clinical, assertive outreach service model focused on connecting people with informal and formal supports by providing guidance, encouragement, motivation and follow-up support.
  • The intervention is time limited, with support provided within a three-month period immediately following a suicide attempt
  • Support provided to people will be collaborative and complementary to existing services to avoid duplication and confusion of service provision.
