Lifeline Aotearoa continues its mission is to reduce distress and save lives. Lifeline believes that suicide is preventable, and we are striving to make suicide a “never” event. Access to support and intervention for all people in times of crisis is proven to saves lives. Lifeline believes that no person in distress or at high risk of suicide should be left alone. We are there for people, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Lifeline is committed to a community approach to preventing suicide where everyone plays a role and takes responsibility and services that support wellbeing are within the reach of everyone. We are committed to engaging with the community including Māori, Pacifica, those having used Lifeline services and those affected by suicide e.g., suicide attempt survivors and the bereaved through the implementation of the Strategy.
Life Matters Suicide Prevention Trust was formed in July 2014 by concerned citizens wanting to make a difference to our suicide statistics in New Zealand.
The Trust was formed because there was very little support available to families bereaved by suicide or those that are suicidal. We provide much needed support and give a voice for the thousands of families devastated by suicide.

The Dougy Centre USA
Phone: 866-775-5683 (toll free)
The mission of The Dougy Center is to provide support in a safe place where children, teens, young adults and their families grieving a death can share their experiences. Through our Pathways Program we provide a safe place for families facing an advanced serious illness.
The Walker L. Bean Foundation was established by Warren and Bernice Bean after their son, Walker, died by suicide at the age of 15 in 1997. In the early days after Walker’s death, his parents and their son Wally, visited The Dougy Center. They were impressed by our mission of providing a safe place for children and families to express their grief. The Bean family decided to establish a foundation in Walker’s name with a mission of promoting education and counseling to prevent teen suicide and to provide support for families grieving a child’s death.
