Suicide is the leading cause of death for Australians under the age of 44. At Lifeline WA we believe that almost all suicides are preventable and we work towards achieving our vision of a community free of suicide. It is our mission to prevent suicide, support people in crisis and create opportunities for emotional wellbeing. Lifeline WA does this through the provision of our 24/7 crisis support line: 13 11 14, online crisis support chat service, community education and engagement programs and our face to face counselling services.
Lifeline WA is dependent upon community contribution, corporate partnerships and fundraising activities to deliver its core suicide prevention and crisis support services.
