Get to Know our Founder
There is immense comfort in being heard and understood.
Second Steps was started in 2019, after Founder, Amber Grace, experienced the loneliness and helplessness of being sent home after a suicide attempt with no support. Feeling hopeless and confused, Amber made a second attempt just two days later. Through connections with other attempt survivors, Amber realised she wasn’t alone in her experience. She recognised the need for attempt survivors to have access to immediate and ongoing support to reduce the likelihood of a second attempt and started the company, Second Steps.
