The past few months have been very busy for Lifeline Canberra. Their services have been expanded and are able to handle a much higher call load. What amazing work this organisation is doing.
Cam and Kristen catch up with Carrie-Anne Leeson, CEO of Lifeline Canberra and chat about what has been happening at the organisation.
About Lifeline Canberra
Lifeline Canberra exists to support people in crisis and save the lives of those experiencing thoughts of suicide.
Our highly skilled volunteers provide 24/7 support via our local crisis support service on 13 11 14. Telephone crisis support workers listen with care and acceptance, whatever the circumstance.
We lose a Canberran every week to suicide. Each day our staff and volunteers fight to save the next life.
Lifeline Canberra is a leading charity in the ACT, setting the benchmark for suicide prevention and community-wide awareness for mental health advocacy.
Our annual fundraising event program has become part of the fabric on the region with our Bookfairs attracting over 50,000 people each year.
