Help Save Lives
Suicide was the leading cause of death for Australians under 44 last year. It claimed eight lives every day, more than road accidents or cancer.
Will you join Lifeline and call on our Government to at least double the funding for suicide prevention and awareness?
Please sign this national petition now. Help reach 1 million signatures before the May Federal Budget.
If suicides were treated like road safety, we could reduce the terrible toll they take on individuals, their loved ones and our communities.
Sign and share today, and help stop Australia’s suicide death toll.

Telephone Crisis Support Training Course
Lifeline Macarthur is one of 42 centres around Australia providing volunteers to answer the 13 11 14 crisis support line.
As demand for our crisis support service increases, we are always in need of more volunteers to join our team and help answer these calls.
Becoming a Telephone Crisis Supporter is a great way to give back to your local community, learn new skills and obtain a recognised qualification.
The course is a combination of face to face group work and e-learning modules. No previous experience is necessary - all we ask for is a willingness to learn and have a non-judgmental and accepting manner.
Courses start at various times of the year. If you would like to find out more about volunteering with Lifeline Macarthur, please call 02 4645 7200.
