Somewhere in Australia, there is a new call to Lifeline every 30 seconds.
Currently our skilled and dedicated crisis supporters are responding to over 3,000 calls a day from someone in crisis.
We Need Your Help. Will You Be the Answer?
Ways to Be The Answer in 2023:
Out Of The Shadows Walk 2023
Sunday September 10 2023
Join us to walk on World Suicide Prevention Day (September 10) to remember those we’ve lost to suicide, and raise funds to provide crisis support and suicide prevention services to save lives.
You can walk to remember a loved one, as a personal tribute for a friend or family member, or to show your support for Australians experiencing emotional distress or mental illness.

By registering to support Lifeline Austraia, every dollar raised through your City2Surf will help save lives by funding Lifeline's suicide prevention programs. Let's run Sydney!!
How will you Be The Answer?
Run, cycle, swim or walk to help keep the phones running.
Be it a morning tea or a BBQ, a movie night or disco - gather all of your favourite people together to have a lots of fun to support a serious cause.
Join us on World Suicide Prevention Day for our Out of The Shadows Walk.
What will you go without to help others? Coffee or beer, social media or smoking – what will you give up to stop calls going unanswered?
When it comes to celebrating your big day (birthday, wedding, anniversary) ask your loved ones to make a donation to save others instead of buying a gift.
You don’t have to follow our suggestions if you have your own fantastic idea for a fundraiser – go for it!
Gather your friends and unleash individual superpowers for a shared cause. You'll go further with more of you.
How others did it
Jim A Barker
Jim Barker ,a Sydney photographer saw his work dry up overnight due to COVID-19. A tale of resilience and community he put devoted his time to creating and capturing a heartfelt project to connect with the community and save lives.
Doortraits is a colourful time capsule of pictures capturing the hearts of a community in lockdown, made whilst observing social distancing measures. The first COVID-19 exhibit of its kind will go live online at Twelvepoints.Photography/Doortraits to raise funds for Lifeline. Drawing parallels with ‘Humans of New York’ the project is the brainchild of photographer Jim A. Barker. Forty Doortraits have been collected across Sydney as part of the online exhibition, each offering intimate insights into the joys and struggles faced during the pandemic
Doortraits is raising vital funds for Lifeline which is experiencing an unprecedented number of calls during COVID
