are nearly 2,400 suicide attempts in the Hunter every year.
Family members, friends and carers
play an important role in supporting the recovery of a person who has attempted
suicide. In conjunction with the start of Mental Health Month, beyondblue has launched The Way Back Support Service which will
be delivered in the Hunter by a consortium of local organisations including
Hunter Primary Care.
As part of this broader program, we
are very pleased to support the Guiding Their
Way Back Support Groups that are designed to support the family and friends
of those who have attempted suicide.
