No need to suffer alone: support for suicide bereaved

April 26, 2018

The Suicide Bereavement Support Group, which has received initial funding from the Ballarat and District Suicide Prevention Network, will be managed by Lifeline Ballarat. Two mental health professionals will facilitate the four week support group: Anita Hoare, Bereavement Specialist, Sound Psychology and Judy Rowlands, Crisis Support Supervisor, Lifeline Ballarat. The program will provide education, mutual support and coping development to assist group members to understand and process their grief following suicide.
