After growing up in a broken home and being hospitalised as a teen, Rachael nearly attempted suicide when she was only 17 years old. Thankfully, she reached out to Lifeline. Lifeline helped Rachael find light in her darkest moment. She made a full recovery and wants to share her story to inspire hope. She’s also a published author, painter and a mental health advocate.
Today, she is encouraging all Australians to help make spirits bright this Christmas by donating to Lifeline’s Christmas Appeal. Every dollar donated helps Lifeline’s services to support those who are lonely, isolated or in crisis. This Festive Season more than 27,000 people will reach out to Lifeline for help. Your gift today can help us make their spirits bright.
