A Tasmanian Lifeline 1800 98 44 34
What a turbulent few months we have been through and may still face.
We understand that you, your friends and your family may have experienced massive amounts of change from the effects of COVID-19.
These sudden changes have caused an amount of fear, and that’s a totally understandable experience, but you don’t have to go through it alone. Experiencing a range of emotions is a normal reaction. We’ve all gone through a whole range of emotions with COVID-19, such as lack of control, anxiety and fear.
If COVID-19 has made life tough for you, you’re not alone. Call A Tasmanian Lifeline on 1800 98 44 34.
Our group of dedicated team members are committed to support you and provide ideas to assist in these uncertain times.
Three types of support available:
Call in: Tasmanians will receive support from a trained support worker to discuss concerns and where appropriate, be directed to a referral service.
Call out: Contact socially isolated older Tasmanians identified through existing services, concerned family and friends, or by other health professionals.
Reach out: Through partnership with those industries significantly impacted, identify at-risk members and reach out with support, counselling or employee assistance programs.

A Tasmanian Lifeline is staffed from 8am to 8pm, seven days a week.
