We all have good days and bad days. Then there are those days when something isn’t quite right, you’ve got something on your mind, or things just seem too much. Whatever it may be, sharing the load with someone else can really help. So no matter who you are, or how you’re feeling, you can talk it through with us – we’ll point you in the right direction so you can seek further support.

Last year more than 150,000 people in Australia contacted us about their concerns – both big and small – and you can too.

All calls and chats are one-on-one with a trained mental health professional, and completely confidential. Although we may ask for your first name and some general details, you can let us know if you’d like to remain anonymous.


Give us a call any time of the day or night – select from the voice menu or simply hold on the line to talk with a trained mental health professional.

We’ll be there to listen, provide information and advice, and point you in the right direction so you can seek further support for the cost of a local call (could be more from mobiles).
