The Public Health Agency (PHA) wishes to engage with stakeholders on a proposed model of support for people who have been bereaved by suicide; these are called post-vention services. Post-vention services aim to provide a consistent, compassionate approach to supporting those bereaved or affected by suicide, including family and social circle within the funding available. A postvention service is an intervention conducted after a suicide, largely taking the form of support for the bereaved family, friends, professionals and peers.
The PHA will be hosting a number of public events, both online and in all the Health Trust areas, as part of the consultation process.
