Lifeline has introduced a new pilot program that offers a text message service for people struggling with suicidal thoughts.
“Did you know that if you text 0477 131 114 between 6pm to 10pm, on any given night, a crisis worker will text with you?
“Many people don’t like talking on the phone and would be more comfortable texting.
“It’s a free service run by The Suicide Crisis Text Line that anyone feeling depressed or suicidal can access to talk,” a spokesperson for Lifeline said.
“If you are struggling to cope or thinking about suicide, support is available.
“You don’t need to face your troubles alone.
“Lifeline’s Crisis Supporters are available via text message to listen and keep you safe,” the spokesperson said.
