I am under 18, will you tell my parents/carer that I have called Lifeline?

Lifeline counsellors will encourage callers under the age of 18 to seek additional support from their parents or main carer. However, we understand that you may be worried that telling a parent or carer might place you at further risk. In this case alternative options can be explored to make sure you get all the support you need.

Remember, you can remain completely anonymous and talk to a counsellor without giving your details if you wish.
