Man using a phone to contact counselling service about mental health or suicide issues.

Here are some contacts where you can find information about mental illnesses. In an emergency where life or property is threatened, call 000. If there is no threat to life or property in an emergency, call Lifeline on 13 11 14.

This is far from an exhaustive list. It is deliberately brief to give you an introduction to information on mental health issues. There is an enormous amount of information on the web about mental health issues, but be careful what you read. Make sure it is from a reliable source. The links below are certainly reliable sources. If you find any links or phone numbers that don't work, please leave a message in the comments or send us an email.
