Safe to talk - Sexual harm helpline offers 24/7, free, professional, compassionate and confidential support by phone, text message (SMS) and online chat. We are here to help everyone in New Zealand who may be impacted by sexual harm.
When you contact us you will talk with one of our trained and supportive counsellors who are experienced in how to help people in your situation. They will listen to you, unpack your story and feelings, and work with you to help you through your challenges. Anyone can call and get support, anytime. We are always open. You can contact us for free, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Whatever your reason, you matter to us. We’re here to help.
We offer free confidential contact with a trained specialist. We can also connect you to support services in your community if that’s what you want.
The counsellor can arrange to talk with you in your language - when your call is answered, say you'd like an interpreter and the language you'd like to speak in.
