Get immediate support

We all have good days and bad days. Then there are those days when something isn't quite right, you've got something on your mind, or things just seem too much. Whatever it may be, it can make a real difference having someone to talk to. To hear what you have to say. And to give you advice. So, no matter who you are, or how you're feeling, reach out to us for support – we'll point you in the right direction so you can get the help you need.

Last year people in Australia accessed our service more than 254,000 times to discuss their concerns – both big and small – and you can too.

All calls and chats are one-on-one with a counsellor. Although we may ask for your first name and some general details, you can let us know if you’d like to remain anonymous.

Beyond Blue Support Service - experiencing delays
Beyond Blue is experiencing extended wait times for our support service. We know it can be hard to take the step to reach out for support and apologise for the delay. We’re doing everything we can to connect you with a counsellor as soon as possible.

If there is an immediate risk of harm to yourself or others, please call 000.

If you or someone you know is thinking about suicide, call Lifeline on 13 11 14 or the Suicide Call Back Service on 1300 659 467.
