Embedding Alternatives to Suicide (Alt2Su) Project

responsibility to, not for or over people

About Alternatives to Suicide (Alt2Su) Groups:

 

Alternatives to Suicide (Alt2Su) peer-led community-based groups centre mutual connection and meaning making around suicide distress, thoughts and experiences. They offer non-clinical spaces where people can be honest about their experiences without fear of forced treatment, other forms of coercion, or risk assessment that shuts conversation down.

Multiple Alt2Su groups are available online and in-person for people in South Australia each week. Some groups are completely open and some are specifically designed to be for people of particular ages, gender, sexual or culturally diverse identities.

Alternatives to Suicide was developed by the Wildflower Alliance (formerly the Western Mass Recovery Learning Community) in the US.

[This project is made possible by financial support from Wellbeing SA, Country SA PHN and Adelaide PHN – including monetary contribution from LELAN].
