Our Services / Ratonga
Our free community helplines (Lifeline 24/7, Suicide Crisis Helpline, Kidsline) as well as our text support service HELP (4357) are answered by qualified counsellors and trained volunteers from call centres in Auckland and Christchurch.
Here you will find resources to help support someone concerned about their own risk of suicide or that of someone else. Red flags, how to listen, connect with a professional and more helpful and informative resources.
Specialist Counselling is currently available from Lifeline’s Auckland centre to parents with dependent children or youth aged 17 and under or via online counselling. We currently offer 4-6 sessions per person.
