As we round out another year, we are taking stock of the information our community found most useful throughout 2017.
We aim to support Australians in dealing with thoughts of suicide, helping others when they’re feeling low, and bereavement for those who have lost someone to suicide. Our most visited pages reflect just that: people who want to understand feelings and want support in some way. That’s what we’re here for, so check out some of the most read resources:
- Why am I thinking about suicide? It’s important to know that while you may feel painfully alone at the moment, you are not alone in thinking about suicide. But if you want to find out why you may be feeling this way, we have some information which may help.
- How do I support someone following a suicide attempt? It can be very difficult to know how to respond when someone you know has tried to end their life. Learn more about what to expect and how to help.
- How to help yourself when you’re thinking about suicide. We’ve compiled a list of things that other people have found useful when they’re feeling at their very lowest and considering self-harm.
- What should I look out for if I know is suicidal? Keep your eye out for some of these changes in behaviour in the people you care about.
- What do I do if someone I know is thinking about suicide? There is a lot of emotion and work involved following the discovery that someone you know is thinking about suicide, which is why we’ve put together this resource to help you prepare and work through it.
We hope that people know we are here to support you whether you’re worried about yourself or someone else. We work around the clock, which means you can call a member of our Suicide Call Back Service counselling team any time of the day, any day of the week on 1300 659 467.
