Will my doctor be told that I have called Lifeline?

Prior to making a call to Lifeline, you (or the person you are worried about) may already be receiving other professional support. If this is the case, the counsellor will discuss and agree with you what information may be important to share with health professionals or other people who are involved in your life, such as a social worker, psychiatrist or teacher.

If you and a Lifeline counsellor decide that the most appropriate type of follow- up support for you is community face-to-face counselling, we will seek your permission to let your GP know that we intend to offer you a service.
