Non-clinical peer-led services

There has been a consistent call by people with lived experience of suicide for greater support options and choices. With innovative non-clinical peer-based service models now emerging there is lots to learn and do such that every person across Australia has access to them.

Community-led Safe Spaces

Community-led Safe Spaces are volunteer-run, non-clinical services where people experiencing suicidal distress can find compassionate and empathetic support from workers who have also gone through their own suicidal crisis (or have ‘lived experience of suicidal distress’) and have been trained to use their lived experience to support others.
