Hi, here's some Australian hotlines and helplines I googled;
All numbers, emails and websites are organised by what type of crisis they specialise in; general life advice, sexual assault/rape, domestic violence, etc. they are further organised by states (New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, Tasmania, South Australia and West Australia) and territories (Australian Capital Territory and Northern Territory). The spoilers are clearly marked and for the state spoilers, they have their long form and common, short forms.
By the way for anyone who wants some help on what Australian state/territory is where here is a political map.
I've met someone who didn't know that Australia had states, just a fact. Also, that tiny gray thing in NSW is the ACT.
1800 55 1800 is the Kids Helpline and gives counselling for anyone aged 5 to 25. I think some people will find this helpful as many Wishers are in this demographic.
1800 RESPECT (1800 737 732) is the 24 hour, National Sexual Assault, Family & Domestic Violence Counselling Line for any Australian who has experienced or is at risk of, family and domestic violence and/or sexual assault. Their website is https://www.1800respect.org.au/.
Lifeline has a national number who can help put you in contact with a crisis service in your State and their number is 13 11 14. It is open 24 hours and they also have a website; http://www.lifeline.org.au/.
Mensline Australia supports men and boys, call them at their 24/7 line; 1300 78 99 78. Their website, http://www.mensline.org.au/, has info about life, relationships and wellbeing, such as same-sex relationships, maintaining a healthy [heterosexual] relationship, and how to help suicidal people. It's mainly aimed at young men (I daresay the demographic may be 15-25) but there are some parts about older people. It also has different articles depending on ethnicity, like if you're an ATSI (aboriginal or Torres Strait Islanders) or Arabic.
The Australian Childhood Foundation provides counselling for children and young people affected by abuse. Call them at 1800 176 453 or (03) 9874 392, email them at email@example.com and visit their website at http://www.childhood.org.au/
