From 1 October, 2023 Lifeline will be delivering the suicide prevention, mental health and counselling services formerly delivered by On the Line Australia, following the organisations’ recent amalgamation. These services include MensLine, the National Suicide Call Back Service, SuicideLine Victoria and a range of mental health, counselling and family violence prevention services.
It’s our commitment to supporting any Australian through their darkest moments and providing them with the most appropriate support that has led us to integrating On the Line Australia’s clinical services with Lifeline’s crisis service to provide wrap-around care for the help seeker.
The current range of Lifeline digital services will continue to be delivered in the same way they have for the last 60 years and will be enhanced by the addition of these new clinical services into our family.
