EMPOWER Pacific made more than 350 support referrals for suicidal victims from January to August this year.
The Lautoka-based help centre specialises in counselling services and has actively supported those prone to depression and exhibiting suicidal tendencies.
Child protection specialist and clinical adviser Sarah Young said many of their staff members dealt with these types of cases on a regular basis.
"In terms of the frontline work that we do, between January and August this year Empower Pacific staff responded to just over 350 referrals for support following a suicide attempt," she said.
"Many of these individuals were able to ensure their own safety through safety planning, therapeutic intervention including exploring their situation to find hope for the future and development of improved support networks when engaging with their counsellor.
"Fifty individuals were assisted following a self-harm attempt while 48 families were affected by suicide or suicide attempts."
Ms Young said while dealing with these individuals had provided a challenge, many made significant progress after receiving counselling.
"The majority of these clients reported a reduction in anxiety and an increase in their empowerment and confidence levels following counselling.
"Generally, this meant allowing the family to be supported to express powerful emotions and have their feelings about their situation normalised or helped with developing appropriate coping strategies to deal with what was going on for them.
"By providing support to families as well the individual themselves, staff could make sure the whole family is given the opportunity to talk about what is going on in the hope that this will strengthen links and improve communication and relationships."
Ms Young said most were referred to their services following initial identification by Health Ministry staff members.
