Lifeline's 50 year history
In 1963 Lifeline's founder, Rev Dr Sir Alan Walker, took a call from a distressed man who later took his own life. Determined not to let isolation and lack of support be the cause of more deaths, Sir Alan launched a 24-hour support line.
Almost 50 years later, Lifeline is continues to support Australians in crisis and suicide prevention through our range of national and local services including our national 13 11 14 service and the Online Crisis Support Chat service. Every day through the support of our dedicated volunteers, these services connect with thousands of Australians at risk of suicide.
Lifeline provides access to 24/7 telephone crisis support on 13 11 14 or chat to us online (8pm-midnight, 7 days (AEDT) www.lifeline.org.au/crisischat
