Our focus is the prevention of suicide in separating parents. Our tagline is keeping parents alive, and in their kids’ lives
We are non-ideological, non-political, gender neutral and gender inclusive. We do not do ‘activism’.
We are often asked to provide policy makers high quality and unbiased factual information that they need to make better decisions about the areas in which we operate.
Parents Beyond Breakup not only supports parents experiencing trauma through family breakdown and separation but also acknowledges the specific issue of parent-child contact and custody battles commonly termed ‘parental alienation’, a factor closely linked to stress, anxiety, depression, isolation and suicide in Australia.
Every child deserves to have a relationship with both of their parents ….
Parents Beyond Breakup pays its respects to the traditional custodians across the lands in which we work, and acknowledge their elders past, present, and future.
