*Please note, people who are experiencing suicidal ideation or at risk of self-harm can access the Suicide Referral Pathway under Psychological Services for Underserviced Groups.



The Way Back provides aftercare to people who have entered a hospital emergency department or Community Mental Health Service following a suicide attempt or who are experiencing a suicidal crisis.
