If life is in danger call 000

Suicidal thoughts can occur to anyone at any point in their life. They are more common than you may realise. You may be feeling overwhelming pain, hopeless, worthless, isolated, or like there is no way out. While it is OK to have suicidal feelings, it is important to reach out and let someone know how you’re feeling. Lifeline is here for you. We understand what it’s like to have thoughts about suicide. We’re here to listen and help you.

We want to sit with you in your time of need and help you through it.
