If you think you or someone you know, may be thinking about suicide, call the TAUTOKO Suicide Crisis Helpline for support.
Lifeline Aotearoa has been helping New Zealanders in distress and crisis for over 60 years.
Our free community helplines, 0800 LIFELINE and Suicide Crisis Helpline 0508 TAUTOKO, and our text support service HELP (4357) are answered by our highly trained team from centres in Auckland and Christchurch. We also provide corporate training through our Lifeline Connect service.
