Christmas is often a happy time for loved ones to come together and celebrate. However for some Australians that’s not the case. Lifeline is a national charity providing all Australians experiencing a personal crisis with access to 24 hour crisis support and suicide prevention services.
On Christmas Eve alone, Lifeline expects to receive 2,483 calls. Of these calls, an estimated 129 will be suicidal and more than 422 calls will be unanswered.
