Wesley LifeForce Aftercare

Many people experience times of distress, and for some it may bring up thoughts of suicide. No one should have to face their darkest moments alone. If you live in the Coffs Harbour area and had thoughts of suicide or consider yourself at risk, we’re here to listen and support you.

We also offer suicide awareness and prevention training for family, friends and referring services.

What we offer

There may be times in your life that can cause distress and bring up thoughts of suicide. If you’ve had thoughts of suicide, or consider yourself at risk, we’re here to listen and support you.

Working with you we can provide up to 14 weeks of care, the option of a support group and connect you with flexible community-based support services to improve your wellbeing.

To be eligible, you must:

  • be 18 years or older
  • live in the Coffs Harbour Local Government Area
  • not currently be supported by another suicide aftercare service
  • be experiencing suicidal distress or self-harm behaviour.

Would you be interested in joining a support group?

Many of us notice changes in people around us. But when you feel something ‘isn’t right’ sometimes, it’s hard to know what to do.

You may not want to say anything for fear of making the situation worse or because you don’t know what to do if they confirm your concerns.

While these conversations can be difficult, there’s a lot you can do to help.

By talking to the person and getting more information, you can help them access the support they need.

However, caring for others sometimes means we also need support for ourselves. Remember to take some time out for your own wellbeing and do something that brings you joy.

We can provide information and resources to help family, friends and carers through regular support groups and training opportunities.
