August 2017 — June 2020

The Better Support Project is a research and resource-development project, examining the impact of supporting someone who has attempted suicide. Conducted by SANE Australia and the University of New England, it aims to explore the experiences of family and friends following a suicide attempt by a loved one.

The project will include three phases:

  1. An online survey.
  2. Telephone interviews.
  3. Resource development.

Results of the first two phases will be used to develop resources and provide better support to those caring for someone following a suicide attempt.
