When someone has suicidal thoughts or attempts suicide, it can be hard for their loved ones to respond to their needs whilst also looking after themselves.
SANE Australia has launched the incredible You Are Not Alone resource. This was created with the help of people who have been carers and know how tough it can be. There’s information covering the many stages of supporting someone who has attempted suicide, or who is at risk of doing so.
Beginning next Monday 29th June, a five day discussion in the Family, Friends & Carers Forum will:
- unpack the ins and outs of supporting loved ones with complex mental ill health
- discuss access to community support
- explore how to navigate the hospital system
- review ongoing self-care strategies, specifically for families and friends.
