LGBTQIA+ Communities

Support After Suicide partners with Switchboard Victoria to provide a range of services for LGBTQIA+ people bereaved by suicide.

SASH (Support After Suicide Hub)

Support After Suicide has a dedicated hub and forum for LGBTQIA+ people bereaved by suicide called SASH.  Created by and for LGBTQIA+ communities, SASH has information, resources, real stories and an online community forum for LGBTQIA+ people bereaved by suicide aged 18+ to connect with each other.

You can find SASH at


Alongside Switchboard Victoria, we offer early bereavement groups for LGBTQIA+ people who have lost a loved one to suicide.

Eight-week early bereavement group

Our LGBTIQA+ suicide bereavement groups are run twice per year.  Each group is small with between 5 to 8 participants.  The group is led by LGBTQIA+ identifying facilitators from both Support After Suicide and Switchboard Victoria

The groups run for 8 sessions. Sessions run on the same weeknight over eight consecutive weeks, with the same participants attending every week.
