Lifeline Partnership

Lifeline is a national charity providing all Australians experiencing a personal crisis with access to 24-hour crisis support and suicide prevention services. Key amongst these is its 13 11 14 telephone line.

Somewhere in Australia there is a new call to Lifeline every minute. People call Lifeline about suicidal thoughts or attempts, personal crisis, anxiety, depression, loneliness, abuse and trauma and stresses from work or family. Lifeline aims to help callers to develop strategies to deal with the circumstances underpinning the crisis, and, where appropriate, suggest services that may offer more specialised, professional support.

Servier Australia has funded research projects through the Lifeline Research Foundation to investigate improved pathways to ensure the crisis support service can help all its callers – both one-off callers and frequent callers. The Lifeline Research Foundation brings together the insights of those with personal experience about suicide (survivors of suicide attempts and people impacted by the loss of another to suicide) with researchers and professional experts to find better ways to prevent the tragic loss of life.

“Lifeline would like to thank Servier Australia for showing leadership within the health industry, by being the first corporate contributor to Lifeline’s Suicide Prevention Foundation” CEO, Lifeline National Office
