National Support Services

& Helplines

If you or someone you know is ever in need of help, support or just someone to talk to, it's important to know that we're not alone.


There are many organisations and helplines out there that offer a range of services for people who are experiencing difficult times or who need someone to listen to them.


Our helpline page provides a list of some of the different helplines and resources that are available to you, covering topics such as mental health, crisis support, domestic violence, and more.


We hope that this page will be a valuable resource for anyone who needs it, and that it can help connect you with the help and support you need. Remember, you are never alone, and there is always help available if you need it.
