"Out of all the things I do in my life, Lifeline is the one I am most proud of.  Giving back to the community and connecting with people in crisis is very meaningful." Christina, Lifeline Crisis Supporter.

Help us build toward an Australia free of suicide

As Australia's largest suicide prevention service, Lifeline relies on the support of members of the community to ensure that no person has to face their darkest moments alone. From our volunteers to those who provide financial support through donations, bequests, community fundraising, and corporate support; the time, energy, and expertise you generously provide helps us be there for those who need us and equip communities across Australia to be suicide safe.

Every 30 seconds, a person in Australia reaches out to Lifeline for help.

We are a national charity providing all Australians experiencing emotional distress with access to 24 hour crisis support and suicide prevention services.

We exist so that no person in Australia has to face their darkest moments alone.
