About Us

The Way Back Support Service is available to support people in the first few months following a suicide attempt.

According to your needs, The Way Back Support Service can assist by:

  • providing encouragement and support in the first few months following your attendance at hospital
  • helping you follow your hospital discharge and safety plan
  • supporting you to connect with your GP and other services that may help you in your journey to recovery.

 

What happens next?

While in hospital or shortly after leaving hospital, a Support Coordinator from The Way Back Support Service will be in touch with you to check in and see how things are going. You are also welcome to make contact with us any time during the three months after you leave hospital.
