The Way Back Support Service (The Way Back) is a low to high intensity non-clinical psychosocial support and transition service for people who may have recently attempted suicide or are at risk of suicide and have presented to either Robina Hospital or Gold Coast University Hospital.
People who have attempted suicide or experienced a suicidal crisis often experience severe distress in the days and weeks immediately afterwards, and they are at high risk of attempting again.
Beyond Blue developed The Way Back Support Service to support them through this critical risk period. The Way Back provides non-clinical, tailored support for up to three months following discharge from hospital after a suicide attempt or suicidal crisis.
A Support Facilitator contacts the person within one business day of receiving their referral and tailors a program for up to three months after discharge from hospital which includes building a personalised safety plan and linking them to health and community services and clinical care if needed.
Low to high intensity service.
