Our listening service is aimed at those in imminent danger of taking their own lives.

Lifeline considers it critical to ensure Callers can express themselves without fear of being judged or recorded. Some prefer to die rather than have their personal affairs exposed. For 45 years, we have acknowledged the risks  and are aware we can be falsely accused of inappropriate behavior. The Caller must give their permission for any information to be shared by Lifeline. On this page, we will provide the critical statistics we capture for the benefit of all. 


The data tells a story about men and the age range of those at risk. However, it should be noted that women are also at risk as studies do show that women attempt taking their life more often than men. 

To reduce the burden of suicide and despair, Lifeline has to engage different groups of people in ways that will reach the most vulnerable. With your support, together we can reduce the number of deaths by suicide and address our mental health challenges.


The data speaks to the variability in tackling despair in our Callers. Our dedicated Listeners stay on as long as is needed offering emotional support. Our Listeners, as per our policies, can also provide further support through follow-up calls, facilitating emergency services and referrals all with the consent of the Caller. 

Lifeline is building capacity towards facilitating 150 callers a day. Additionally, with your support, we can introduce new programs, incorporate more digital services and help you make a difference in our fight against despair in society!
