A four to 12 week psychosocial program for people who have presented in suicidal crisis to emergency departments or community mental health teams.
The program is primarily staffed by skilled peer workers who work closely with the person around their drivers of suicide and goals to help reduce their risk and take steps towards the life they want.
A Peer Worker has their own experience of mental health and recovery and in this way can support from a place of understanding and help create hope for recovery. The person, along with the peer worker, will work collaboratively with a mental health clinician for the initial meeting and at four weekly reviews.
Please note we are currently only accepting referrals from SENSW Community Mental Health Teams and Emergency Departments in Bega, Eurobodalla, Goulburn and Queanbeyan.
