We're with you every step of the way
We know the power of support, understanding, and connection after a suicide attempt
We believe every individual should have the opportunity to feel heard, understood, and supported after a suicide attempt. We know this can be achieved when we make real connections between individuals who have shared a similar journey. The connections you make and the support you receive, through Second Steps, will help reignite your hope for a future you create.
Every journey begins with a single step
The story of our founder was the birthplace for Second Steps. After experiencing several suicide attempts, often left without support and feeling hopeless and helpless, Amber connected with a number of peers and professionals and identified a need for better supports for individuals after a suicide attempt.
Amber's journey inspired our vision at Second Steps: To provide support to individuals most at risk of suicide in an effort to reduce the rate of subsequent attempts and reduce the rate of suicides in Australia.
