From our Gordon centre, Lifeline Harbour to Hawkesbury provides a wide range of crisis support and suicide prevention services, including financial counselling, face-to-face personal counselling for individuals and couples, a Gambling Help service for problem gamblers, a bulk-billed psychological service, support and treatment 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.
13 11 14 - 24/7 Crisis Support
Lifeline's 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 on 13 11 14 (24/7).
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 PACFA, APS and ASSW.
We offer a range of support, psycho-educational and psychological treatment 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.
The Emergency Relief Service provides immediate support for people who are in financial crisis. Assistance offered includes food parcels, food and petrol vouchers, information and referral.
Community Aid Service
Our team of Community Aid volunteers provide support services such as transport for shopping, socialising, medical appointments and companionship visits.
This is a safe, anonymous online community for people living with mental illness and their families, friends and carers.
Thousands of Australians use these Forums to support each other and share their experiences.
The Forums are hosted by SANE Australia and partner organisations across the country and are moderated 24/7 by mental health professionals.
Lifeline's Veterans Mental Health and Wellbeing Service (VMHS) is ancillary to specialised services already available to service leavers, reservists and those who have served in the armed forces.
We acknowledge the specific challenges and mental-health issues faced by the veteran community, and can apply a holistic approach to designing a customised support program to meet complex personal needs.
