When life gets too painful to bear - there is someone at Lifeline who cares

Lifeline Foundation is a registered non-profit organization entirely run by volunteers who offer emotional support to the distressed, depressed and suicidal. We seek to alleviate misery, loneliness and despair by listening, in a non-judgmental way, to those who cannot turn to anyone else who would understand and accept them. The caller remains anonymous and everything said to the volunteer remains confidential.
