Parents Beyond Breakup Ltd
Parents Beyond Breakup was founded on Father's Day 1999 as ‘Dads in Distress’ by Tony Miller OAM. A Dad who contemplated suicide after being separated from his children.
For nearly 20 years we have been working primarily with Dads and and occasionally Mums experiencing distress due to divorce and separation from their children. Our primary objective is suicide prevention for this high risk group - with recent research data suggesting that around 50% male suicides may be linked to relationship breakdown. Our purpose is to keep Mums and Dads alive, and in their kids lives.
We currently operate Dads in Distress support groups in locations around Australia as well as a National Telephone Helpline.
