Where to Seek Help in a Crisis
While it is our mission to help people learn to deal with anxiety, depression and related illnesses, we are not equipped to provide urgent help if you are dealing with a crisis. If you require urgent assistance, please don’t wait. Seek help immediately from your health care professional or explore the resources and support services below.
If you live outside of Australia, call your local suicide prevention helpline. The International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) has contact information for crisis support centres in many different countries.
