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.
Lifeline provides compassionate support for people in crisis. No judgement. No conditions. No agenda. Just a human connection to help people get through their darkest moments.

Lifeline Digital
Increasingly, our crisis support is taking place across a diverse array of platforms. The 13 11 14 phoneline remains a crucial way for help-seekers to contact us, but at Lifeline, we are passionate about giving everyone a chance to speak and be heard, in whatever form works best for them.

Our confidential crisis support is now available via phone, text, or online chat.
