Our ALIVE program offers regular counselling sessions to help people in Perth experiencing suicidal thoughts and self-harm.
Our registered clinicians deliver regular sessions for up to three months, for Perth-based individuals, aged 17 and over. We can also help connect you to ongoing support to meet your personal needs after the initial three months.
Who is it for?
The service is for individuals aged 17 and above, who are at moderate to high risk of suicide and/or on-going significant self-harm behaviour but not requiring referral to an emergency service and not engaged in long-term case management. Other exclusion criteria include admission to hospital, engagement with Hospital in The Home (HiTH) or participation in a residential program. Individuals referred to the program will be further assessed by a triage officer to determine eligibility.
