About Lifeline WA

Lifeline WA provides all Western Australians experiencing a personal crisis or thinking about suicide with access to 24 hour crisis support and suicide prevention services.

Our 13 11 14 service is a nationally-routed crisis support number, available every day of the year, from any location in Australia. It is available to anyone - regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, religion or sexual orientation.

Somewhere in Australia, there is a new call to Lifeline every 30 seconds. Last year, 97,925 Western Australians reached out to Lifeline WA for help. Many were after advice or self-help information for friends and family. Others were reaching out for someone to listen to their concerns. Typically, callers in crisis find that painful changes or problems are increasing their distress and overwhelming their capacity to cope.

Why do people seek support from our 24 hour/7 day a week Crisis Support Services?

  • Suicidal thoughts or attempts
