In a relatively affluent society like ours, whether we are born Australian or arrive here from afar, there is still loneliness, grief, despair and desperation to find relief from the pain of anxiety and uncertainty.

Sometimes those we turn to, to share and unburden ourselves, find it hard to cope with the responsibility. However, trained and life-experienced phone befrienders at Lifelink Samaritans give you time to reflect and re-order your priorities. You are not judged for your tears, but nurtured through your grief and confusion. You feel comfortable with the silences, knowing you are being valued and listened to, as soon as you can go on.

Your troubles are your own unique journey, your resilience is often found in your own words, if only you could speak them in confidence, slowly freeing yourself from self recrimination and doubt. A resilient person finds options in their life and relationships, Life-linkers accompany you on your search.

With NO religious affiliations, this successful volunteer organisation has grown from its Launceston roots, and now listens to callers Tasmania wide.
