About Lifeline South Africa

Lifeline South Africa provides 24/7 free and confidential support by phone. We are here to help everyone in South Africa who may require support with depression, family, grief & loss, loneliness, pregnancy & abortion, sexual abuse, substance use, trauma & PTSD.

When you reach out to us, you will talk with one of our trained counselors who have experience in how to help people with similar experiences to your own. They will listen, express empathy and understanding, and assist you in finding a way through your situation. Anyone can call and receive free support. We exist to help everyone regardless of age, gender, beliefs, or ethnicity. We recognize that difficult mental health or crisis experiences can happen at any time, so we are available 24 hours a day, every day of the week.
