You are not alone.  StandBy is dedicated to supporting people bereaved or impacted by suicide.  

We know that many people are impacted by each suicide death. This can include family members, close friends, kinship groups, colleagues and whole communities. 

Our service is at no cost and here to support you over the phone or in person.  We can assist you in finding the right sort of support.  We can explain what might be happening with the police and other organisations following a suicide.  

We are part of a national, 24-hour network. So you can always find support.
