Lifeline Adelaide saves lives. And somewhere in Australia, there is a new call to Lifeline every 30 seconds.
We are committed to preventing suicide, supporting people in crisis, and promoting good mental health and emotional wellbeing.
Every year, we answer more than 36,000 calls from people experiencing crisis. Many of them are thinking about taking their lives. Our dedicated team of Crisis Supporters are here to listen and offer support and, where appropriate, refer people to other services that can help.
We're here for you.

60 years of Lifeline Adelaide
At 5pm on 16 March 1963, Lifeline opened its telephone lines for the first time.
Since that day, 60 years ago, our incredible volunteers from across Australia have kept the lines of Lifeline open every hour of every day, allowing Lifeline to deliver on its mission to support Australians in times of crisis.
On 11 August 1963, Lifeline Adelaide was the second centre to open in Australia.
This month, as we celebrate this important milestone, we reflect on the part Lifeline Adelaide has played in answering 23 million calls nationwide. We have stood behind many South Australians in their most difficult time, providing support and hope.
60 for Sixty - can you help us raise $60,000 for Lifeline Adelaide?
This year, as we celebrate sixty years as a centre supporting people in crisis, we’re asking 1000 South Australians to spare $60 to help us continue to answer these life-saving calls.
