Every day in Australia, eight people die by suicide. Six of them are men.
And one of them could have been Ben – if he hadn’t called Lifeline.
It was a normal Sunday afternoon when something small made Ben snap and storm out of the house. Things had been getting on top of him. Despite his wonderful family, great career and good life, Ben didn’t feel right.
He was surprised when an online quiz he took suggested he seek immediate help.
“It was a Sunday. I couldn’t call the GP. So I called Lifeline.”
“For the first time in so many years, someone had listened to me, someone cared enough to take the time to listen to my story and to want to help me. I felt like I wasn’t alone.”
“Whoever that woman from Lifeline was, she set into place a course of events that ended up saving my life.”
