When you donate to Lifeline, you stand with people in their darkest moments and reassure them they are not alone.
You help give them the strength to go on. To live.
Without Lifeline’s Crisis Support Line, and the wonderful generosity of people like you who make it possible, Ben knows he would likely not be here today.
Though he didn’t know it when he called Lifeline in tears one day, Ben was suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
“It was a Sunday, and I couldn’t call the GP, so I rang Lifeline.”
“I said, ‘I’m not really sure why I’m calling’. The lady said, ‘That’s alright. That’s normally how the conversation begins.’
“It floored me. I dropped to the ground and burst into tears.
“I don’t really remember much of what we spoke about next or how long the conversation went for. But for the first time in so many years, someone had listened to me, someone cared enough to take the time to listen to my story and to want to help me. I felt like I wasn’t alone.”
“Whoever that woman from Lifeline was, she set into place a course of events which ended up saving my life.”
