Anne Evans, Team Leader StandBy, Anglicare SA

StandBy Support After Suicide is a national, federally funded, free service operating across Australia. Anglicare SA provides the service to the whole of South Australia.  StandBy is a suicide bereavement response service that provides a 24-hour coordinated community crisis response to families, friends and associates who have been bereaved through suicide.

StandBy is available to people, families, friends, associates, witnesses, schools, workplaces, groups and individuals, emergency and community responders and whole communities affected by suicide.  This service is available to people bereaved by a recent or past suicide.  Because people grieve in very different ways, support services may not be required for many weeks, months or even years in some cases.  Whenever help is needed StandBy will be there to provide support and assistance.

Standby can also provide professional development sessions, briefer information sessions, and run community workshops - all without cost
