Lifeline provides confidential crisis support that is accessible 24 hours a day. We encourage any person in Australia who is contemplating suicide, experiencing emotional distress, or caring for someone in crisis to call or text Lifeline.

Contact us for a confidential conversation with an empathetic crisis supporter who won't pass judgement. We will support and encourage you to discuss whatever is on your mind.

"Thank you Lady...whoever you are...you have no idea how much your voice, and words, and strength to keep me going helped last night. With everything in my heart...thank you!"
"If I met that woman that I spoke to that day, I would tell her that scared and suicidal 17-year-old girl, is so grateful to be alive today."
It’s important to recognise that our mental health, just like our physical health varies over time. It is normal for our moods and feelings to vary from day to day depending on what is happening around and within us.
There are so many resources available to support mental health and wellbeing, it can be hard to know which to trust or where to go. We can help by pointing you in the right direction.
