  • Talking about her problems really helped     10 July 2017

    We recently heard from a caller who said that talking about her problems has really helped her.

    Over the years she’s called Lifeline a handful of times – sometimes she’s gone years without calling, other times she’s called more. She said she doesn’t know what she’d do without Lifeline being there - “sometimes when I’m freaking out, I just need a short call with someone and it makes a world of difference”.

    Thank you so much for making this possible! It would be really great if you could share this link ( with your friends and family and ask them to get involved - the more support we get, the more people we're able to help.

  • Are you making a difference?      22 June 2017

    If you’re wondering if your support of this campaign is making a difference, the answer is YES!

    Because of your donation and the donations of others through this campaign, we’re able to answer the increasing volume of calls we’re receiving, more than 300 a day, 5 of which are people at high risk of suicide.

    Each call to Lifeline costs approximately $22 which includes IT costs and phone charges as well as training, recruitment and supervision of volunteers.

    With no government funding, we wouldn’t be able to cover these costs without public donations.

    You have helped us to be there for people from all over New Zealand, of all ages and ethnicities – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

    So thank you for making a difference and helping to make NZ a place where everyone has someone to turn to in dark times and no one will think less of your for asking for help.

    If you want to do more you can make a regular gift here -

  • Ways to let your friends know you're there for them     14 June 2017
    Main image

    We love reading your comments and messages of support. This one from Simon sums it up so well - “It's not a sign of’s a sign of being a human!!!”

    Keep sharing the message that no one will think of less of you if you ask for help so more people can get the help they need without the fear of being judged.

    If you are concerned about a friend or family member, here are some ways you can let them know you’re there for them:

    • Ask them if they are OK

    • Listen without judgment

    • Take them seriously

    • Ask if they have a plan

    • Connect them with professionals

    You can also call our 24/7 Suicide Crisis Helpline if you’re concerned that someone you know may be thinking about suicide - 0508 TAUTOKO (828 865).

    We’re working hard to get this message to everyone in NZ. Thank you for being the first to pledge to be there for your whanau and let NZ know that it’s ok to ask for help!

    Thank you so much for coming on board to help make NZ an even better place, where we look out for each other and it's ok to ask for help.

    If you haven't already, post your support on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat or LinkedIn letting your whanau know it’s ok to ask for help.

    Here is a post you can use:

    “Today I've donated the cost of a coffee to Lifeline’s Givealittle page so that every New Zealander has someone to turn to in tough times. It’s OK to ask for help and no one will think less of you if you do. Join me by doing the same and donating at so that every New Zealander knows of at least one person that would not think less of them for asking for help. #here4you #lifelineaotearoa”.
