Mental Health Services
Active Response Bereavement Outreach (ARBOR) is a free service that offers short-medium term grief-counselling, practical/emotional support, appropriate referral support, volunteer lived-experience peer support and support groups to people who have been recently impacted by lost loved ones to suicide.
ARBOR suicide-bereavement counsellors can provide support and strategies for managing grief, as well as refer you to other Anglicare WA services if required. Counselling sessions are an hour long and can be one-on-one or involve multiple clients, with initial appointments able to be held at home.
ARBOR lived-experience peer volunteers are people who have experienced bereavement by suicide who wish to help others through similar situations. Lived-experience peer volunteers attend the ARBOR Newly Bereaved Groups in conjunction with the grief Counsellor to provide support and empathy to participants.
Eligibility: Metro area and bereaved by suicide. Self and agency referrals welcome
