New Sucide Prevention Program for Murrumbidgee

Partnership to Show The Way Back

New Sucide Prevention Program for Murrumbidgee

Suicide prevention services across the Murrumbidgee region are about to be improved, with the Murrumbidgee Primary Health Network partnering with Beyond Blue and Wellways Australia, to deliver The Way Back Support Service.

It provides a one-on-one support to people for up to three months after a suicide attempt, a period of intense risk and vulnerability, after they’re discharged from hospital.

Wellways Australia will deliver the program, employing six full-time support co-ordinators across the district, as part of the MPHN’S 800 thousand dollar-a-year commitment.

Locals who need help or support can also contact Access Line on 1800 800 944.
