Suicide prevention, response and postvention support   



As an educator, your response helps guide and support children and young people who may be thinking about or have been impacted by suicide.

headspace Schools & Communities supports schools to prepare for, respond to and recover, where there has been a death by suicide.

Currently, postvention planning is available only to Australian secondary and combined schools across the government, independent and catholic sectors.

Suicide prevention, response and postvention resources are available on the Be You website.

If your school is currently responding to, or recovering from, a suicide or attempted suicide, please contact your Be You state or territory manager.

Be You Consultants are available 9am-5pm (local time), Monday to Friday to provide tailored support for your school.

It's important for schools to undertake immediate risk management processes, follow emergency management protocols and contact your relevant department or school authority prior to contacting Be You.

We can help plan a whole school approach focusing on positive mental health promotion, prevention of poor mental health and early intervention for students experiencing difficulties.

Be You Consultants can support your school to:

  • prepare your school community to be ready should a death by suicide occur (currently only available to Australian secondary and combined schools)
  • guide your school on how to support a young person at risk of suicide
  • guide your school response to a death by suicide and the subsequent recovery for the community.



Be You offers a range of online, evidence-based tools, resources and professional learning aimed at improving the skills and knowledge of educators to support mental health and wellbeing in children and young people.
