The Way Back Support Service

February 10, 2020

Self-harming and Suicide prevention support service

Services are available to provide person-centred follow-up care to individuals who have self-harmed or attempted suicide. This includes Beyond Blue's The Way Back Support Service (TWBSS), for individuals following a suicide attempt or identified as experiencing a suicidal crisis. The TWBSS was officially launched in Toowoomba and Ipswich in November 2019 and is currently being delivered by Richmond Fellowship Queensland. To date, the service has been accepting referrals from hospital and health services. From mid-February 2020, referrals will also be actively accepted from GPs and community mental health services.

TWBSS focuses on reconnecting people with the community and their existing support networks. It’s specifically-tailored to each individual, working one-on-one with a Support Coordinator for up to three months to engage them with services that address issues leading to their distress.
