Lifeline Canberra exists to support people in crisis and save the lives of those experiencing thoughts of suicide.
For over 45 years, our highly skilled volunteers have provided 24/7 support via our local 13 11 14 crisis support and suicide prevention service. Lifeline Canberra telephone crisis supporters listen with care and acceptance, whatever the circumstance, and provide support and information to people in need. Many services and private practitioners refer clients to our service for support between appointments and after hours.
As an integral part of the Canberra landscape, we continue to promote community and individual resilience. Each day our staff and volunteers fight to save the next life.
Some of the crises that our callers experience include: suicide, relationships, mental health issues, loneliness, addiction, bereavement, physical health problems, etc.
Lifeline is non-judgemental, confidential and accessible at all times.
Help save the next life...
