Beyond Blue

Beyond Blue is a national, independent, not-for-profit organisation working to increase awareness and understanding of depression, anxiety and suicide prevention in Australia. They provide information and support to help everyone in Australia achieve their best possible mental health, whatever their age and wherever they live.

EISS Super is contributing to funding The Way Back Support Service trial in Newcastle until September 2018. The Way Back Support Service is a suicide prevention program targeting people discharged from hospital after trying to take their own lives. The Way Back delivers one-on-one, non-clinical care and practical support after a suicide attempt that people can relate to, so they do not disengage with services. Support Coordinators help people stay safe and connected with their support networks and with existing health and community services during a three month period of high risk and vulnerability. To date no-one engaged with the service has taken or attempted to take their own life.
