Accessing the program
The service is for those who are at moderate to high-risk of suicide or self-harm behaviour but not requiring referral to an emergency service and not engaged in long term case management. Referrals are accepted from self, family, GP, hospital or other health professional, and is for people over the age of 17.
You will be contacted by a triage officer who will provide an initial assessment and offer you an appointment usually within 72 hours or direct you to services that may be more appropriate for your situation. Referral forms can be found under the "Practices" tab on this website.
There is no cost to access ALIVE.
