Description of intervention(s) / exposure
The Eclipse Group curriculum is a adapted for Australia from the Didi Hirsch support group for people who have attempted suicide, available through the Suicide Prevention Resource Centre (https://www.sprc.org/resources-programs/manual-support-groups-suicide-attempt-survivors). The group consists of an 8 week closed non-clinical support group for people who have attempted suicide with psycho-educational components and safety planning. The intervention is delivered by Lifeline staff at each site who have been trained in the facilitation of the group. The group sessions run for 1.5 - 2 hours, once per week, for 8 weeks. The evaluation is embedded in the delivery of the program, with data being collected by the facilitators at pre- and post-group. Two further data collection timepoints occur when the researchers conduct a focus group at 1 month post-group and individual, in-depth interviews at 6 months post-group. The trial sites for this evaluation are Port Macquarie, Gordon, Macarthur, Bathurst. Multiple groups may be run at each site during the trial period.

Summary
Brief summary
This is an evaluation of an 8 week support group for people who have previously attempted suicide. The support group teaches specific skills to reduce suicidality, while at the same time
increasing resilience and help seeking behaviours. The aim of the evaluation project is to
ascertain whether the implementation of the program into the LifeLine service decreases the
rate of suicidality and increases the rate of recovery. Self report questionnaires are to be completed pre and post intervention, short term follow up at 1 month (focus group), and a long term follow up at 6 months (interview) to understand the utility and appropriateness of this program for people who have a history of suicide attempt/s.
