HEADSPACE SCHOOL SUPPORT

Headspace School Support is a suicide postvention program. The program has been developed to support Australian school communities to be prepared for, respond to and recover from the death of a student by suicide. There is a toolkit with a useful checklist for schools that provides a snapshot of the immediate and longer term tasks required for the successful management of this difficult situation. There is also a range of fact sheets with information around suicide attempts, responding to media, memorials and events and information for communities as these events have an emotional effect on the whole community not just the school community.
