The Way Back Support Program

What is The Way Back?

The NT has the highest suicide rate of any Australian state or territory by a significant margin.

An initial trial of The Way Back, funded by the Movember Foundation, was launched in Darwin in June 2014 and was delivered locally, with oversight from Beyond Blue. An independent evaluation was conducted by Ernst & Young.

A second iteration of the service ran in 2016/2017, with a third phase expected to commence in 2018 with funding from NT Health.

People who have attempted suicide often experience severe distress in the days and weeks immediately afterwards, and are at high risk of attempting again. Yet there is no widespread national program to support them once they are discharged from hospital. Many people go back to the same circumstances that led to their distress. Beyond Blue developed The Way Back Support Service to bridge this gap. The Way Back provides non-clinical, tailored support for up to three months following discharge from hospital after a suicide attempt or suicidal crisis. People referred are contacted by a Support Coordinator within one working day of receiving their referral and guided through a program personalised to meet their individual needs.

This can include everything from support accessing clinical care during elevated periods of risk, to referrals to community-based services such as financial or relationship counselling. This one-on-one support helps motivate people to keep connected and alive.
