Australian Helplines

It's important to remember that you're not alone, and that it's okay to reach out for help. It's normal to feel hesitant or embarrassed about seeking support, but please know that there is no shame in asking for help.

Many people struggle with their mental health at some point in their lives, and seeking support can be a positive step towards healing and recovery.

The helplines and resources listed on this page are there to provide confidential and non-judgmental support, so that you can feel safe and supported in seeking help. Don't hesitate to reach out if you need to - remember, it's always better to reach out for help than to suffer in silence.
