Crisis Helpline

Lifelink Samaritans focuses on listening and caring, empowering and valuing callers who are troubled in life, experiencing loneliness, distress or suicidal thoughts. We encourage return calls for reinforcement, or to celebrate personal growth and improved wellbeing.

Entirely volunteer run the Organisation has no affiliation with any religious group.

Lifelink Samaritans Tasmania offers our community:
- An empathic, confidential and non-judgmental listening service by phone state-wide
- Intensive pre-phone and on the job (mentored) training in an array of people, communication and phone skills valuable within and outside our Call Centre
- To work with other bodies, building community resilience & recovery from loss to suicide.

Asking for help is a sign of courage - this first call could be your bravest.
