We exist to connect people to life

Why Volunteer

Without our volunteers Lifeline Tasmania would not exist!



Support after suicide

Suicide can impact people in very different ways.  Losing someone to suicide can be overwhelming and confusing and can present a wide range of emotions.



A Tasmanian Lifeline

Need someone to talk to? Call A Tasmanian Lifeline on 1800 98 44 34 between 8am and 8pm, 7 days.
