Text available

What to expect

You'll be asked for some personal details, such as your age and location, but these are optional and you can choose to remain anonymous. You'll then be connected to a trained Lifeline Crisis Supporter. You can text them anything that's on your mind - no matter how overwhelming, they are there to listen.

I'm having a really difficult time in my life right now.
I understand, would you like to talk more about it?
Yes please, I think that would really help me.
