At Lifeline Harbour to Hawkesbury a core purpose and focus for us is the 13 11 14 telephone crisis support line. Thanks to our more than 200 fully trained volunteers, our Centre provides 13 11 14 support, answering calls 24/7, every day of the year.
But what many people may not realise is that from our Gordon centre we also provide a wide range of crisis support services, including financial counselling, face-to-face personal counselling for individuals and couples, a gambling help service, a bulk-billed psychological service, support groups, and community aid.
These services provide help with diverse situations, ranging from extreme financial hardship to relationship issues; from compulsive gambling to anxiety, stress and depression; and from aged care to grief and trauma.
Telephone Crisis Support
Lifeline telephone crisis supporters are available to take your call at any time of the day or night. Whatever your crisis, if you’d like to talk to someone, we’re available 13 11 14.
Suicide prevention is the reason that Lifeline’s 24-hour telephone crisis support service was developed more than 50 years ago. For those with thoughts of suicide, it is vital to find caring support.
Our multidisciplinary team of counsellors, social workers and psychologists are professionally qualified being members of CAPA, APS and ASSW.
We offer a range of psycho-educational support groups at our offices in Gordon. These groups are run by experienced facilitators and may offer a combination of skills development, psycho-education, support or specific therapeutic interventions.
Community Aid Service
Our team of Community Aid volunteers provide support services such as transport for shopping, socialising, medical appointments and companionship visits.
