Australia is facing a national suicide emergency with more than 8 Australians taking their own lives each day.
Suicide is the leading cause of death for Australians aged between 15 and 44 years. And for every life lost too soon, many parents, children, siblings, friends and colleagues are left devastated.
More can – and must – be done to address this national emergency. With your help, we believe that lives lost to suicide can be prevented.
As a trusted national charity, Lifeline has been saving lives for more than 50 years. We’re combating the increasing prevalence of suicide through our 24/7 crisis support and suicide prevention services like our 13 11 14 crisis line. Our 3500 highly-trained Crisis Supporters are ready and standing by to help anyone, any time.
But last year we received more than 1 million contacts from people in crisis. We urgently need public donations to ensure we have the resources to respond to every single person in need. Your donation can help recruit, train and support more Crisis Supporters and develop new technologies and services that help us respond to more people, faster.
