Waves After Suicide Program

We are taking registrations for the WAVES programme being run in Term 4 2021, starting Monday 1st November.

A grief education program for adults 18+ bereaved by suicide.

The next program will be run for 8 weeks.

WAVES is a grief education programme that aims to support adults bereaved by suicide in their understanding and management of grief and development of resilience. It offers the opportunity to meet and share with others who are also experiencing the impact of suicide and supports members to:

  • Process and manage thoughts and feelings around what has happened.
  • Find meaning in their experiences.
  • Discuss the nature of suicide.
  • Gain information and strategies about how to care for themselves and others after a suicide, including children and young people.
  • Adjust to living with loss and move forwards.
