Hi there, if you feel like life is impossible, that nothing will ever get better - or feel like you want to hurt yourself - then you need (and deserve) help right now.

Here are some places to contact for help and support.  Most of them are 24 hour services.

Try these websites (some of these have live web counselling, email counselling or articles about kids and teens struggle with):

In Australia, you can also call these telephone lines for 24 hour support:

  • Lifeline: 13 11 14
  • Kids helpline (note - this is for kids AND teens AND young adults up to the age of 25): 1800 55 1800

Alternatively, you should find someone in your family or a friend to talk to right away.

If they feel worried about you, they can take you to see your GP or to your local hospital's emergency room.

Remember, if you feel unsafe or like you might hurt yourself or someone else - get help right away.
