The suicide of a young person has a long and lasting impact on their friends and peers, their families, schools and communities.
headspace in Schools is a suicide postvention program, which assists Australian school communities to prepare for, respond to and recover from the death of a student by suicide. It is part of a suite of headspace programs developed to promote mental health and support young people aged 12-25 dealing with difficult issues in their lives.
