Support for people who experience suicidality and attempt survivors
Eclipse Attempt Survivor Group – ECLIPSE Support Groups for Suicide Attempt Survivors are a safe, non-judgemental place for adults (aged 18 and over) who have attempted suicide to share their thoughts, feelings and experiences with others who understand.
They are closed groups that meet weekly for 8 weeks. Groups are structured so that group members can share their experiences, as well as assisting with wellbeing, safety, coping skills and connectedness.
The Shelter Group – Based in Illawarra Shoalhaven, The Shelter Group provides a non-clinical environment where people are free to talk openly about suicidality in facilitated conversations, without setting in train a risk or crisis management response.
