Aboriginal Aftercare Program

Hunter Primary Care currently deliver Aboriginal Aftercare, an innovative suicide aftercare service, developed to save the lives of one of the population groups most at-risk of suicide –people who have attempted suicide or live with suicide ideation.

Consultations with Lifespan’s Aboriginal Advisory group resulted in a strong recommendation that the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People Aftercare service provides consumers with the opportunity to work with an identified Indigenous support coordinator to optimise the delivery of a culturally safe and appropriate support service.

The service delivers person-centred, non-clinical care and practical support after a suicide attempt, with the support coordinator linking clients into existing health, clinical and community-based services, to ensure that people are safe and accessing support that is available.
