Discussion group – by Zoom

Bereavement by Suicide

Developments in Support After Suicide's Program


Last month the State Coroner John Cain described the 9% increase in suicides in Victoria as "very concerning".

He told ABC Radio Melbourne: "We didn't see an increase over the pandemic, but what we saw in the last part of last year was  a significant increase."

This increase leaves more people impacted by suicide bereavement.

In Victoria Jesuit Social Services' Support After Suicide Program has been at the forefront of Postvention since 2004.

Our first discussion group of the year will take a look at the experience of Support After Suicide during Covid and since.

General Manager, Dr Louise Flynn, will outline the developments that have been taking place in the field and the road forward.

Dr Greg Roberts, Manager of Support After Suicide, Victoria, will talk about how the program adapted during Covid and how this has changed the way the service provides counselling and support groups.
