In March 2018, Alternatives to Suicide, an innovative peer led approach to suicide from the Western Massachusetts Recovery Learning Community (USA) came to Australia. Being and inside out & associates australia were pleased to host the Alternatives to Suicide Forum in Glebe on 9th March 2018 where Caroline Mazel-Cartlon and Sera Davidow spoke to us about how this approach evolved and why it has been so successful.

It is hoped that we will be able to support the development and growth of the Alternatives to Suicide approach in NSW and Australia. Sign up to our mailing list to receive information about any developments. 

We acknowledge the generous support and initiative of MercyCare, Western Australia, in bringing the Alternatives to Suicide Peer Support training to Australia.

We’d also like to thank Flick Grey and the volunteer team at Alternatives Melbourne for letting us know about the Alternatives to Suicide approach.
