Lifeline supports the community through Prevention, Intervention and Postvention services.
Lifeline's Comprehensive Suicide Prevention Service (CSPS) has helped thousands of local people with its three pronged approach to suicide prevention—Prevention, Intervention and Postvention (Bereaved by Suicide). The CSPS has enabled us to conduct community training promoting awareness of those at risk of suicide, one-on-one counselling for those at immediate risk of suicide and in supporting the people in our region who are bereaved by suicide.
“Sometimes it helps to just know that someone is listening, that you never have to be alone”
The three distinct components of the Comprehensive Suicide Prevention Service are:
PREVENTION - Incorporates LivingWorks safeTALK, Skills-for-Life training, the support of suicide prevention networks, annual participation in World Suicide Prevention Day and our “In Conversation with Lifeline” discussions.
INTERVENTION - Incorporates LivingWorks ASIST, individualised counselling, Life Matters program and referral.
POSTVENTION - Incorporates counselling and care calls, distribution of information and support packs, the facilitation of Survivors of Suicide (SOS) Groups and community education.
