Begin Your Journey With Second Steps

Supporting survivors of a suicide attempt

 

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.

Our Story

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.

 
 

Individual Support

Sometimes we need more personalised support and the chance to work with someone one-to-one. During your initial appointment, a Peer Support Person will listen to understand your experience and circumstances, support you to identify your goals, and collaboratively design a care plan to outline our supports.

Online Support

When you join our Online Support Group, you will be connected with other individuals who have lived experience of a suicide attempt. Through online chats, topics to prompt online discussion, and connections with peers in a safe, moderated environment you will discover skills and strategies to support your recovery journey.

Group Support

Joining our Group Support program provides you access to our Online Support Group as well as invitations to our monthly online discussion groups and opportunities to participate in monthly challenges. The program has been designed to support you in discovering and practicing new skills and developing connections with peers.
