Our dedicated team is here to provide you with a safe and compassionate space, offering professional assistance for every challenge life may bring. You're not alone on this journey. Reach out, connect, and let's navigate through it together.

We’re here to help all Tasmanians

At Lifeline Tasmania, our strength emanates from our local community.

With a dedicated team of volunteers and staff, Lifeline Tasmania exists to prevent suicide and build resilient communities.

 

Funding and donations keep the lights on, but it is our people and volunteers that are the life that keeps the heart of Lifeline beating.

Did you know that Lifeline is there for you no matter what you are going through? You don’t have to be in crisis to reach out for help.

 

Perhaps you aren’t a fan of talking on the phone? We get it, and there’s an option for you. No judgement.

Services

Chats

The Chats program offers a variety of services to Tasmanian's. These vary from group and individual social support through to allied health - social work and counselling services. There is something for everyone in the Chats program.

Training & Support

Lifeline Tasmania offers workplace and community training throughout Tasmania in areas such as Mental Health First Aid, suicide prevention and domestic and family violence awareness training.

Support in the workplace

JMC Dealer Principal Kristy Stewart stands alongside two of her employees in a JMC workshop. This image of Kristy accompanies her testimonial for the Lifeline Tasmania Mental Health First Aid workshop.

After our Lifeline Mental Health First Aid Course was delivered to the JMC Management Teams, we received direct feedback from the group on how the program had given individuals additional skills on how to better manage mental health within the workplace. Overall, I think this was both the facilitator who hosted the course along with the content that was delivered.

Volunteer with us

Tasmanians from all walks of life

Lifeline's volunteers are our backbone of the organisation. We simply would not exist without them. With over 300 volunteers statewide across nearly all programs, volunteers provide the skills and support to drive our vision of a resilient Tasmania free of suicide.

Jill, a Lifeline Tasmania retail volunteer.

Jill

Program: Retail

Why volunteer? The ladies I work with are funny, caring and compassionate.

 

They all make it a joy to work there and I thoroughly enjoy every minute of my time.

Michelle, a Lifeline Tasmania Chats volunteer.

Michele

Program: Chats

Why volunteer? I truly love and appreciate what I do.
I always wanted to choose something that keeps me out and about, but more importantly helping to bring some happiness and fun into people's lives, who so deserve it. I truly think of Chats and its participants as an extended family.

Louisa, a Lifeline Tasmania ACVVS volunteer.

Louisa

Program: ACVVS

 

Why volunteer? At the time I was new to the area so I wanted to meet new people and get involved with social activities. Volunteering seemed like a good place to start and it turned out to be a great decision. Making an older friend who has a
wealth of wisdom and life experience is enriching on many levels.

Ali, a Lifeline Tasmania Suicide Bereavement Group volunteer.

Ali

Program: Suicide Bereavement Group

Why volunteer?  Volunteering does not pay the bills, but as you get older, you see the
benefits of volunteering, of giving back and listening to people with a positive regard. It’s a privilege
to volunteer in this program.
