ATAPS Suicide Support Line

ATAPS Suicide Support Line

The national ATAPS Suicide Support Line is a specialised service designed to support allied health professionals working with people at risk of suicide, providing their clients with access to dedicated professional telephone counselling. The service has recently been extended and is now available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, ensuring this vital service is accessible around the clock.

The service can also make contact with clients who are not able to access their own health professional within 24 hours of their release from hospital, or following a referral from their general practitioner. If health professionals are concerned for a client, they can also request that the ATAPS Suicide Support Line contacts their client to help keep them safe and provide specialist support.
