Lifeline has launched its free text support service – HELP (4357) to increase access to support for people in distress. The service is open to anyone who wants to talk about what is worrying them. Lifeline hopes it will remove barriers to getting help for people who find it difficult to pick up the phone and call.
To use the service, text HELP to 4357 and one of Lifelife’s qualified counsellors or trained volunteers will respond. The service is free of charge.
